Retirement
 
Had I the choice of sublunary good,
What could I wish that I possess not here?
Health, leisure, means to improve it, friendship, peace.
        Cowper.—The Task, Book III. Line 689.

O blest retirement! friend to life’s decline———
How blest is he who crowns, in shades like these,
A youth of labour with an age of ease!
        Goldsmith.—The Deserted Village, Lines 97–99.
