Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Gray
 
Too poor for a bribe, and too proud t’ importune,
He had not the method of making a fortune;
Could love and could hate, so was thought something odd;
No very great wit, he believ’d in a God;
A post or a pension he did not desire,
But left church and state to Charles Townshend and squire.
        Gray.—Of Himself.
