Ambrose Philips Quote

He the robe of justice wore,
Sully'd not, as heretofore,
When the magistrate was sought
With yearly gifts. Of what avail
Are guilty hoards? for life is frail;
And we are judg'd where favour is not bought.


Ode: "On the Death of the Right Honourable William Earl Cowper" (1723), line 137.
