Some praise at morning what they blame at night,
But always think the last opinion right.
Teach me to feel another’s woe,
To hide the fault I see;
That mercy I to other show,
That mercy show to me.
True ease in writing comes from art, not chance,
As those move easiest who have learn’d to dance.
True wit is nature to advantage dress’d,
What oft as thought, but ne’er so well, express’d.
Vice is a monster of so frightful mien,
As to be hated needs but to be seen.
We think our fathers fools, so wise we grow :
Our wiser sons, no doubt will think us so.
Words are like leaves, and where they most abound,
Much fruit of sense beneath is rarely found.
