Noble
 
Oh, what a noble mind is here o’erthrown!
The glass of fashion and the mould of form,
The observ’d of all observers! quite, quite, down!

  1
Oh! what a noble heart was here undone,
When science self destroy’d her favourite son.
        Byron.—English Bards; On Kirke White.
  2
A noble soul is like a ship at sea,
That sleeps at anchor when the ocean’s calm.
        Beaumont and Fletcher.—Honest Man’s Fortune.
  3
Better not be at all,
Than not be noble.
        Tennyson.—The Princess.
  4
Howe’er it be, it seems to me,
’Tis only noble to be good.
        Tennyson.—Lady Clara de Vere, Verse 7.

And to be noble we’ll be good.
