Page 108 - A man so various, that he seemed to be Not one, but all mankind's epitome : Stiff in opinions, always in the wrong, Was everything by starts, and nothing long; But, in the course of one revolving moon, Was chemist, fiddler, statesman, and buffoon ; Then all for women, painting, rhyming, drinking, Besides ten thousand freaks that died in thinking.
Page 222 - And risks, to save a coach, his red-heel'd shoes ; Him, like the miller, pass with caution by, Lest from his shoulder clouds of powder fly. But, when the bully, with assuming pace, Cocks his broad hat, edg'd round with tarnisb'd lace, Yield not the way, defy his strutting pride, And thrust him to the muddy kennel's side ; He never turns again, nor dares oppose, But mutters coward curses as he goes.
