At church with meek and unaffected grace, His looks adornd the venerable place; Truth from his lips prevaild with double sway, And fools who came to scoff remaind to pray. Goldsmith.Deserted Village, Line 177.
Refind himself to soul to curb the sense, And made almost a sin of abstinence. Yet had his aspect nothing of severe, But such a face as promisd him sincere; Nothing reservd or sullen was to see, But sweet regards and pleasing sanctity. Dryden.Character of a Good Parson.
