    Draw we here a parallel.

    All reflections, foul or fair.

    Depths as bright belong'd to Gwynne;
    Thou art very frail as well,
    Frail as flesh is,—so was Nell.
  • This is the porcelain clay of human kind.
  • Unthought-of Frailties cheat us in the Wise.
  • Sometimes we are devils to ourselves,
    When we will tempt the frailty of our powers,
    Presuming on their changeful potency.
