de Alexander Pope

Frase

How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot!

The world forgetting, by the world forgot.

Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!

Each prayer accepted, and each wish resigned. 

 

Alexander Pope

Teach me to feel another’s woe, to hide the fault I see, that mercy I to others show, that mercy show to me.

            - Alexander Pope
