    Will fortune never come with both hands full,
    But write her fair words still in foulest letters?
    She either gives a stomach and no food--
    Such are the poor, in health--or else a feast
    And takes away the stomach-- such are the rich,
    That have abundance, and enjoy it not.

Must herd with those, by whom law's bonds are broke.

A man so various, that he seem'd to be
Not one, but all mankind's epitome;
Stiff in read more

A man so various, that he seem'd to be
Not one, but all mankind's epitome;
Stiff in opinions, always in the wrong.
Was everything by starts, and nothing long;
But in the course of one revolving moon,
Was chymist, fiddler, statesman, and buffoon.
