Excerpt from The Poetical Works of Alexander Pope, Vol. 1: To Which Is Prefixed a Life of the Author
Peace to all such! But were there one whose ft True genius kindles, and fair fame inspires; Blest with each talent and each art to please, And born to write, converse, and live with ease; Should such a man, too fond to rule alone. Bear, like the Turk, no rival near the throne, View him with scornful, yet with jealous eyes And hate for arts that cana'd himself to rise; Damn with faint praise, assent with civil leer, Aqd, without sneering, others teach to sneet gi/mg to wetter-j, and yet afraid to strike.
