There is another old poet whose name I do not now remember who said Adversity is the first path to truth

Men love in haste but they detest at leisure.

He possessed beauty without vanity strength without insolence, courage without ferocity, and all the virtues of man without his vices

To feel for none is the true social art of the world's stoics - men without a heart

They never fail who die in a great cause.

For what were all these country patriots born? To hunt and vote and raise the price of corn?

I cannot describe to you the despairing sensation of trying to do something for a man who seems incapable or unwilling to do anything further for himself.

Man being reasonable must get drunk, The best of life is but intoxication, Glory the grape, love gold - in these are sunk - The hopes of all men and of every nation.

And after all what is a lie? 'Tis but the truth in a masquerade

Arm! Arm! it is - it is - the cannon's opening roar!

Here lies interred in the eternity of the past from whence there is no resurrection for the days - whatever there may be for the dust - the thirty-third year of an ill-spent life which after a lingering disease of many months sank into a lethargy and expired January 22d 1821 A.D. leaving a successor inconsolable for the very loss which occasioned its existence.

I want a hero: an uncommon want, When every year and month sends forth a new one, Till after cloying the gazettes with can't, The age discovers he is not the true one, Of such as these I should not care to vaunt, I'll therefore take our ancient friend

As soon / Seek roses in December - ice in June, / Hope constancy in wind or corn in chaff, / Believe a woman or an epitaph / Or any other thing that's false before / You trust in critics.
