Charles Churchill quotes

Little do such men know the toil, the pains,
The daily, nightly racking of the brains,
...
Though by whim, envy, or resentment led,
They damn those authors whom they never read.
Adepts in the speaking trade
Keep a cough by them ready made.
And adepts in the speaking trade
Keep a cough by them ready made.
Half-starved spiders prey'd on half-starved flies.
Who often, but without success, have prayed
For apt Alliteration's artful aid.
Learned without sense, and venerably dull.
Prudent dullness marked him for a mayor.
