Alexander Pope

Alexander Pope

was an 18th-century English poet, best known for his satirical verse and for his translation of Homer
Learn to live well, or fairly make your will; you played, and loved, and ate, and drunk your fill: walk sober off; before a sprightlier age comes tittering on, and shoves you from the stage: leave such to trifle with more grace and ease, whom Folly pleases, and whose Follies please.More Alexander Pope quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The soul's calm sunshine and heartfelt joy.More Alexander Pope quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Horses (thou say'st) and asses men may try,
And ring suspected vessels ere they buy;
But wives, a random choice, untried they take;
They dream in courtship, but in wedlock wake;
Then, nor till then, the veil's removed away,
And all the woman glares in open day.More Alexander Pope quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A youth of frolic, an old age of cards.More Alexander Pope quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Know then, unnumber'd Spirits round thee fly,
The light Militia of the lower sky.More Alexander Pope quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
