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.
A little learning is a dang'rous thing;
Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring:
There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
And drinking largely sobers us again.

All are but parts of one stupendous whole, Whose body Nature is, and God the soul.
Fools rush in where Angels fear to tread.
An honest man's the noblest work of God.
Fix'd like a plant on his peculiar spot,
To draw nutrition, propagate, and rot.
