Thursday’s Piece

“All nature is but art unknown to thee;

All chance, direction which thou canst not see

All discord, harmony not understood,

All partial evil, universal good:

And, spite of pride, in erring reason’s spite,

One truth is clear, Whatever is, is right.”

(From Essay on Man by “Alexander Pope, 1688 – 1744)

“Oh Happiness! our being’s end and aim,

Good, Pleasure, Ease, Content! whate’er thy name,

That something still which prompts th’ eternal sigh,

For which we bear to live, or dare to die.”
