Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Dulness
 
Yet let not each gay turn thy rapture move,
For fools admire, but men of sense approve:
As things seem large which we through mist descry,
Dulness is ever apt to magnify.
        Pope.—On Criticism, Line 390.
  1
Glory and gain the industrious tribe provoke;
And gentle dulness ever loves a joke.
        Pope.—The Dunciad, Book II. Line 33.
