    • Search not to find what lies too deeply hid, Nor to know things, whose knowledge is forbid.
    • Though with those streams he no resemblance hold, Whose foam is amber and their gravel gold; His genuine and less guilty wealth t' explore, Search not his bottom, but survey his shore.
    • Oh, could I flow like thee, and make thy stream My great example, as it is my theme! Though deep, yet clear; though gentle, yet not dull; Strong without rage; without o'erflowing, full.

    • We're ne'er like angels till our passion dies.
