Diligenter legendum est, acpoene ad scribendi sollicitudinem: Nee per paries modo scrutanda sunt omnia, sed perlectus liber utique ex integro resumendus.

A Muse by these is like a mistress used, This hour she's idolized, the next abused; While their weak heads, like towns unfortified, 'Twixt sense and nonsense daily change their side. Ask them the cause; they're wiser still, they say; And still tomorrow's wiser than today. We think our fathers fools, so wise we grow; Our wiser sons, no doubt, will think us so. 400 410 420 430 A N ESSAY O N C R I T I C I S M Once school-divines0 this zealous isle o'er-spread; Who knew most sentences,0 was deepest read; Faith, gospel, all, seemed made to be disputed, And none had sense enough to be confuted: Scotists and Thomists,Scotists and Thomists,0 Amidst their kindred cobwebs in Duck Lane.

0 Thus critics, of less judgment than caprice, Curious not knowing, not exact but nice, Form short ideas; and offend in arts (As most in manners) by a love to parts. Some to conceit alone their taste confine, And glittering thoughts struck out at every line; Pleased with a work where nothing's just or fit; One glaring chaos and wild heap of wit. 0 True wit is nature to advantage dressed, What oft was thought, but ne'er so well expressed; Something, whose truth convinced at sight we find, That gives us back the image of our mind.
