  • ⋅Where ignorance is bliss,
    'Tis folly to be wise. /Thomas Gray

  • ⋅Large was his bounty, and his soul sincere,
    Heaven did a recompense as largely send;
    He gave to misery (all he had) a tear,
    He gain'd from Heaven ('twas all he wish'd) a friend. /Thomas Gray
  • ⋅To each his suff'rings; all are men,
    Condemn'd alike to groan;
    The tender for another's pain,
    Th' unfeeling for his own.
    Yet ah! why should they know their fate,
    Since sorrow never comes too late,
    And happiness too swiftly flies?
    Thought would destroy their paradise. /Thomas Gray
  • ⋅Thou tamer of the human breast,
    Whose iron scourge and tort'ring hour
    The bad affright, afflict the best! /Thomas Gray
