Damn
 
Damn with faint praise, assent with civil leer,
And without sneering, teach the rest to sneer.

Or ravish’d with the whistling of a name,
See Cromwell damn’d to everlasting fame.
        Pope.—Essay on Man, Epi. IV. Line 283.
  2
Charm’d with the foolish whistling of a name.
        Cowley.—Transl. Georg., Book II. Line 458. [The phrase is Cowley’s and not Pope’s, for he was not born until thirty years after the death of Cowley.]
