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.
