Honour thy parents to prolong thine end; With them, though for a truth, do not contend: Though all should truth defend, do thou lose rather The truth awhile, than lose their love for ever: Whoever makes his fathers heart to bleed, Shall have a child that will revenge the deed. Randolph.
With joy the parent loves to trace Resemblance in his childrens face: And, as he forms their docile youth To walk the steady paths of truth, Observes them shooting into men, And lives in them life oer again. Lloyd.Arcadia, Scene 2.
While active sons, with eager flame, Catch virtue at their fathers name; When full of glory, full of age, The parent quits this busy stage, What in the sons we most admire, Calls to new life the honourd sire. Lloyd.Arcadia, Scene 2.
