James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Crowe
 
  Our better mind / Is as a Sunday’s garment, then put on / When we have nought to do; but at our work / We wear a worse for thrift.  1
  Our narrow ken / Reaches too far, when all that we behold / Is but the havoc of wide-wasting Time, / Or what he soon shall spoil.  2
  The cormorant Oblivion swallows up / The carcases that Time has made his prey.  3
