Alexander Pope

Engrave this Quote Hither the heroes and nymphs resort,
To taste awhile the pleasures of a court;
In various talk th' instuctive hours they past,
Who gave the ball, or paid the visit last;
One speaks the glory of the British Queen,
And one describes a charming Indian screen
A third interprets motions, looks and eyes;
At every word a reputation dies.
-Alexander Pope, The Rape of the Lock Tell a Friend
