See in the east, the illustrious king of day!
His rising radiance drives the shades away...
But how is Mneme dreaded by the race,
Who scorn her warnings and despise her grace?
By her unveil'd each horrid crime appears,
Her awful hand a cup of wormwood bears.
Days, years mispent, O what a hell of woe!
Hers the worst tortures that our souls can know.
Creation smiles in various beauty gay
While day to night, and night succeeds day
Quote of the day
I hate myself because I am not beautiful. I hate myself because I am fat.
May 8, 1753
