How To Live
 
He knows to live who keeps the middle state,
And neither leans on this side nor on that.
        Pope.—Book II. Satire II. Line 61.

        But chiefly, thou,
Whom soft-ey’d 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.—On Death. See title “Thought.”
