NUMBER:3338
AUTHOR:Edward Young (1683–1765)
QUOTATION:Pygmies are pygmies still, though percht on Alps;
And pyramids are pyramids in vales.
Each man makes his own stature, builds himself.
Virtue alone outbuilds the Pyramids;
Her monuments shall last when Egypt’s fall.
ATTRIBUTION:Night Thoughts. Night vi. Line 309.
