Pagina 320 - Difdaining that, which yet they know will take, Hating themfelves what their applaufe muft make. But when to praife from you they would afpire, Though they like eagles mount, your Jove is higher. So far your knowledge all their power tranfcends, As what fhould be beyond what Is extends, V.
