There is a pleasure in poetic pains Which only poets know.
Great offices will have great talents.
Happiness depends, as Nature shows, Less on exterior things than most suppose.
Absence of occupation is not rest, A mind quite vacant is a mind distressed.
There is a pleasure in poetic pains Which only poets know.
