    And these vicissitudes come best in youth;
    For when they happen at a riper age,
    People are apt to blame the Fates, forsooth,
    And wonder Providence is not more sage.
    Adversity is the first path to truth:
    He who hath proved war, storm, or woman's rage,
    Whether his winters be eighteen or eighty,
    Has won experience which is deem'd so weighty.
