- "The Works of the Right Honourable Edmund Burke, Vol. V. (of 12)", Edmund Burke.
Be this, above all things, thy care, Thy children still to rear, As those who court not Fortune's smiles, Nor playthings are of idle hope, or fear: And so the future age will call them blessed; For, in this slothful and deceitful world, The living virtue ever we despise, The dead we load with eulogies.- "The Poems of Giacomo Leopardi", Giacomo Leopardi.
