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.
Why did I write? what sin to me unknown
Dipt me in ink, my parents', or my own?

Who reasons wisely is not therefore wise; His pride in reasoning, not in acting, lies.
Ye gods! annihilate but space and time.
And make two lovers happy.
Wit that can creep, and pride that licks the dust.
Yes; I am proud, I must be proud to see
Men not afraid of God, afraid of me.
