Domestic happiness, thou only bliss
Of Paradise that has surviv'd the Fall!
Thou art not known where PLEASURE is ador’d,
That reeling Goddess with the zoneless waist :
Forsaking thee, what shipwreck have we made
Of honour, dignity, and fair renown!

COWPER.

The Hope and Expectation of the Time
Should not so lavish of their presence be,
Nor so enfeoff ’d to Popularity,
That being nightly swallow'd by Men's eyes,
They're surfeited with honey, and begin
To loathe the taste of sweetness.

SHAKSPEARE.
