Just parted from the shore,
And to the fisher's chorus-note,
Soft moves the dipping oar!“

„Sweet sleep be with us, one and all!
And if upon its stillness fall
The visions of a busy brain,
We'll have our pleasure o'er again,
To warm the heart, to charm the sight,
Gay dreams to all! good night, good night.“

Trusts not to men: nightly within his chamber
The watch-dog guards his couch, the only friend
He now dare trust.“

„Think'st thou there are no serpents in the world
But those who slide along the grassy sod,
And sting the luckless foot that presses them?
There are who in the path of social life
Do bask their spotted skins in Fortune's sun,
And sting the soul.“
De Montfort (1798), Act I, scene 2; in A Series of Plays.
