CHARITY IN THOUGHT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: To praise men as good, and to take them for such
Last Line: To god, thy conscience, and the grave.


To praise men as good, and to take them for such,
Is a grace, which no soul can mete out to a tittle; --
Of which he who has not a little too much,
Will by Charity's gage surely have much too little.

Humility the Mother of Charity

Frail creatures are we all! To be the best,
Is but the fewest faults to have: --
Look thou then to thyself, and leave the rest
To God, thy conscience, and the grave.
