Humor
Engrave this Quote Great use they have, when in the hands
Of one like me, who understands,
Who understands the time and place,
The person, manner, and the grace,
Which fools neglect; so that we find,
If all the requisites are join'd,
From whence a perfect joke must spring,
A joke's a very serious thing.

Satire
Engrave this Quote Why should we fear; and what? The laws?

Satire is always virtue's friend.
