    How sweet an Ovid, Murray was our boast!
          The Dunciad. Book iv. Line 169.

    The right divine of kings to govern wrong.
          The Dunciad. Book iv. Line 188.

    Stuff the head
With all such reading as was never read:
For thee explain a thing till all men doubt it,
And write about it, goddess, and about it.
          The Dunciad. Book iv. Line 249.

    To happy convents bosom’d deep in vines,
Where slumber abbots purple as their wines.

    Led by my hand, he saunter’d Europe round,
And gather’d every vice on Christian ground.

    Judicious drank, and greatly daring din’d.

    Stretch’d on the rack of a too easy chair,
And heard thy everlasting yawn confess
The pains and penalties of idleness.

    E’en Palinurus nodded at the helm.
          The Dunciad. Book iv. Line 614.

    Religion blushing, veils her sacred fires,
And unawares Morality expires.
Nor public flame nor private dares to shine;
Nor human spark is left, nor glimpse divine!
Lo! thy dread empire Chaos is restor’d,
Light dies before thy uncreating word;
Thy hand, great Anarch, lets the curtain fall,
And universal darkness buries all.
          The Dunciad. Book iv. Line 649.
