Pains of love be sweeter far than any other pleasures are.
Bold knaves thrive without one grain of sense, but good men starve for want of impudence.
Reason to rule but mercy to forgive: the first is law; the last, prerogative.
Better to hunt in fields for health unbought than fee the doctor for a nauseous draught. The wise for cure on exercise depend;
Better shun the bait, than struggle in the snare.
And thus the child imposes on the man.
And love's the noblest frailty of the mind.
All objects lose by too familiar a view.
All humane things are subject to decay, And, when fate summons, Monarchs must obey.
I am as free as nature first made man.
