NUMBER:3386
AUTHOR:Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
QUOTATION:Awake, my St. John! leave all meaner things
To low ambition and the pride of kings.
Let us (since life can little more supply
Than just to look about us, and to die)
Expatiate free o’er all this scene of man;
A mighty maze! but not without a plan. 1
ATTRIBUTION:Essay on Man. Epistle i. Line 1.
 
Note 1.
See Milton, Quotation 4.

There is no theme more plentiful to scan
Than is the glorious goodly frame of man.
Du Bartas: Days and Weeks, third day. [back]
