| All live by seeming.|
The beggar begs with it, and the gay courtier
Gains land and title rank and rule, by seeming;
The clergy scorn it not, and the bold soldier
Will eke with it his service.All admit it,
All practise it; and he who is content
With shewing what he is, shall have small credit
In church, or camp, or stateso wags the world.
Scott.Ivanhoe, Chap. XXXVII.; Old Play.
|They please, are pleased; they give to get esteem,|
Till, seeming blest, they grow to what they seem.
Goldsmith.The Traveller, Line 265.
