James Thomson (poet) Quote

A bard here dwelt, more fat than bard becomes
Who void of envy, guile and lust of gain,
On virtue still and nature's pleasing themes
Poured forth his unpremeditated strain.


Canto I, Stanza 68. (Last line said to be "writ by a friend of the author."). - The Castle of Indolence (1748)
