John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:3410
AUTHOR:Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
QUOTATION:In lazy apathy let stoics boast
Their virtue fix’d: ’t is fix’d as in a frost;
Contracted all, retiring to the breast;
But strength of mind is exercise, not rest.
ATTRIBUTION:Essay on Man. Epistle ii. Line 101.
