|Nor peace nor ease the heart can know,|
Which, like the needle true,
Turns at the touch of joy or woe,
But, turning, trembles too.
Mrs. Greville.A Prayer for Indifference, Verses 5, 6.
|And the touchd needle trembles to the pole.|
Pope.Temple of Fame, Line 431.
|True as the needle to the pole,|
Or as the dial to the sun.
|True as the dial to the sun,|
Although it be not shined upon.
Butler.Hudibras, Canto II. Part III. Line 175.
