Page 122 - In all thy humours, whether grave or mellow, Thou'rt such a touchy, testy, pleasant fellow ; Hast so much wit, and mirth, and spleen about thee, There is no living with thee, nor without thee.
Page 5 - While we continue to go on, we will go on merrily: if we moralise it shall be but seldom ; and on all occasions we shall be more solicitous to make our readers laugh than cry — for we are laughing philosophers, and clearly of opinion, that wisdom, true wisdom, is a plump, jolly dame, who sits in her arm-chair, laughs right merrily at the farce of life, and takes the world as it goes.
