calvert vaux quotes- 7 of
Education makes a people easy to lead, but difficult to drive; easy to govern but impossible to enslave.
My lusts they do me leave,
My fancies all be fled,
And tract of time begins to weave
Grey hairs upon my head.
For age with stealing steps
Hath clawed me with his crutch,
The wrinkles in my brow,
The furrows in my face,
As ye of clay were cast by kind,
So shall ye waste to dust.
I loathe that I did love,
In youth that I thought sweet;
My hand and pen are not in plight,
As they have been of yore.
