John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:3491
AUTHOR:Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
QUOTATION:Some to church repair,
Not for the doctrine, but the music there.
These equal syllables alone require,
Though oft the ear the open vowels tire;
While expletives their feeble aid to join,
And ten low words oft creep in one dull line.
ATTRIBUTION:Essay on Criticism. Part ii. Line 142.
