Famous quotes by alexander pope:

    And, spite of Pride, in erring Reason’s spite,

    Why did I write? what sin to me unknown
    Dipt me in ink, my parents’, or my own?

    P—xed by her love, or libeled by her hate.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    Though learned, well-bred; and though well-bred, sincere;
    Modestly bold, and humanly severe:
    Who to a friend his faults can freely show,
    And gladly praise the merit of a foe?
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    Thus Pegasus, a nearer way to take,
    May boldly deviate from the common track.
    From vulgar bounds with brave disorder part,
    And snatch a grace beyond the reach of art,
    Which without passing through the judgment, gains
    The heart, and all its end at once attains.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
