Avoid the politic, the factious fool,
The busy, buzzing, talking harden'd knave;
The quaint smooth rogue that sins against his reason,
Calls saucy loud sedition public zeal,
And mutiny the dictates of his spirit.
Ambition is a lust that's never quench'd,
Grows more inflam'd and madder by enjoyment.
Quote of the day
