|Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocotts Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.|
|Blest be that spot, where cheerful guests retire|
To pause from toil, and trim their evening fire;
Blest that abode, where want and pain repair,
And every stranger finds a ready chair;
Blest be those feasts with simple plenty crownd,
Where all the ruddy family around
Laugh at the jests or pranks that never fail;
Or sigh with pity at some mournful tale;
Or press the bashful stranger to his food,
And learn the luxury of doing good.
Goldsmith.The Traveller, Line 13.
