Seite 17 - With Monkeys Ingenuity, That love to practise, what they see ; When one, whose Turn it was to peep, Saw something in the Engine creep, And, viewing well, discover'd more Than all the Learn'd had done before.
Seite 208 - Wav'd to assert the murder of a prince, The author of false Latin to convince ; But laid the merits of the cause aside, By those, that understood them, to be try'd. And counted breaking Prisciaris head * a thing More capital, than to behead a king, For which h' has been admir'd by all the learn'd Of knaves concern'd, and pedants unconcern'd. Judgement is but a curious pair of scales, That turns with th...
Seite 217 - Though he, that has but impudence, To all things has a fair pretence ; And, put among his wants but shame, To all the world may lay his claim...
Seite 12 - Nor shall our past Misfortunes more Be charg'd upon the ancient Score: No more our making old Dogs young Make Men suspect us still i' th' Wrong; Nor new-invented Chariots draw 215 The Boys to course us, without Law; Nor putting Pigs t...

Seite 13 - As if th' were destined to miscarry, In consort tried, or solitary ; And since it is uncertain when Such wonders will occur again, Let us as cautiously contrive To draw an exact narrative Of what we every one can swear Our eyes themselves have seen appear, That, when...
Seite 1 - Her real estate, and personal ; And make an accurate survey Of all her lands, and how they lay, As true as that of Ireland, where The sly surveyors stole a shire : 10 T' observe her country, how 'twas planted, With what sh...
Seite 241 - Which way soe'er they are design'd to go. NAVIGATION, that withstood The mortal fury of the Flood, And prov'd the only means to save All earthly creatures from the wave, Has, for it, taught the sea and wind To lay a tribute on mankind, That, by degrees, has swallow'd more Than all it drown'd at once before. THE prince of...
