In woods bright Venus with Adonis stray'd, And chaste Diana haunts the forest shade. Come lovely nymph, and bless the silent hours, When swains from shearing seek their nightly bow'rs; When weary reapers quit the sultry field, And crown'd with corn, their thanks to Ceres yield. This harmless grove no lurking viper hides, But in my breast the serpent Love abides.
Here bees from blossoms sip the rosy dew, But your Alexis knows no sweets but you. Oh deign to visit Know then thyself, presume not God to scan The proper study of Mankind is Man.
Alexander Pope Quotes - The Quotations Page
Placed on this isthmus of a middle state, A Being darkly wise, and rudely great: With too much knowledge for the Sceptic side, With too much weakness for the Stoic's pride, He hangs between; in doubt to act, or rest; In doubt to deem himself a God, or Beast; In doubt his mind and body to prefer;.

Fame can never make us lie down contentedly on a deathbed. In pride, in reas'ning pride, our error lies; All quit their spere, and rush into the skies! Pride still is aiming at the blessed abodes, Men would be Angels, Angels would be Gods. Honor and shame from no condition rise; Act well your part, there all the honor lies.
Ambition first sprung from your blest abodes; The glorious fault of Angels and of Gods. Hope springs eternal in the human breast: Man never is, but always To Be Blest. Every man has just as much vanity as he wants understanding. Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind! Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd. To swear is neither brave, polite, nor wise. Expression is the dress of thought. Blessed is the man who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed was the ninth beatitude. All are but parts of one stupendous whole, Whose body Nature is, and God the soul.
