Creative Quotations from . . .
Alexander Pope
(1688-1744) born on
May 21
English poet. He is remembered as a major satirist of Augustan age; wrote "The Rape of the Lock," 1714 and "Moral Essays," 1731-35.
The bookful blockhead, ignorantly read,
With loads of learned lumber in his head.

For observations which ourselves we make,
We grow more partial for th'observer's sake.
Nature, and Nature's laws lay hid in night;
God said, 'Let Newton be!' and all was light.
There is a certain majesty in simplicity which is far above all the quaintness of wit.
It is with our judgments as with our watches: no two go just alike, yet each believes his own.
