Strona 419 - A perfect judge will read each work of wit With the same spirit that its author writ ; Survey the whole, nor seek slight faults to find Where nature moves, and rapture warms the mind ; Nor lose, for that malignant dull delight, The generous pleasure to be charm'd with wit.
Strona 409 - Received his laws, and stood convinc'd 'twas fit, Who conquer'd nature, should preside o'er wit. Horace still charms with graceful negligence, And without method talks us into sense : Will, like a friend, familiarly convey The truest notions in the easiest way.

Strona 207 - ... qui studet optatam cursu contingere metam, multa tulit fecitque puer, sudavit et alsit, abstinuit venere et vino ; qui Pythia cantat tibicen, didicit prius extimuitque magistrum. nunc satis est dixisse ' ego mira poemata pango ; occupet extremum scabies ; mihi turpe relinqui est, et quod non didici sane nescire fateri.
Strona 170 - FOR ONE WHO WOULD NOT BE BURIED IN WESTMINSTER ABBEY. HEROES and kings! your distance keep; In peace let one poor poet sleep, Who never flatter'd folks like you : Let Horace blush, and Virgil too.
Strona 580 - The poet, of whose works I have undertaken the revision, may now begin to assume the dignity of an ancient, and claim the privilege of established fame and prescriptive veneration. He has long outlived his century, the term commonly fixed as the test of literary merit.
