Of all creatures that breathe and move upon the earth, nothing is bred that is weaker than man.
Thou knowst the oer-eager vehemence of youth,|How quick in temper, and in judgement weak.
I detest that man, who hides one thing in the depths of his heart, and speaks forth another.
It is not right to glory in the slain.
How prone to doubt, how cautious are the wise.
All strangers and beggars are from God,
and a gift, though small, is precious.
