|Here some shrewd critick finds Im caught,|
And cries out better fed than taught.
Swift.Pheasant and Lark.
|There taught us how to live; and (oh! too high|
The price for knowledge) taught us how to die.
Tickell.To Earl Warwick on the Death of Addison.
|From this example still the rule shall give,|
And those it taught to conquer, teach to live.
Congreve.The Birth of the Muses.
Whom soft-eyed Pity once led down from heaven,
To bleed for man, to teach him how to live,
And oh! still harder lesson, how to die!
Dr. Porteus.Death a Poem, Line 316. (The idea is Tickells.)
