What men call gallantry, and gods adultery,
Byron, Don Juan, 1. 63. ADVERSITY - see Affliction.
'Tis strange how many unimagin'd charges
Such a house broke ! So noble a master fallen ! all gone! and not One friend, to take his fortune by the arm, And go along with him.
Sh. Timon, 11. 2. This is in thee a nature but affected ; A poor unmanly melancholy, sprung From change of fortune.

ADVERSITY--ADVICE. ADVERSITY - continued. The gods in bounty work up storms about us, That give mankind occasion to exert Their hidden strength, and throw out into practice Virtues that shun the day, and lie conceal'd In the smooth seasons and the calms of life. Addison, Cato. Where is the hero who ne'er found his equal ? Or which the nation that can boast a chief Who still return'd victorious from the field ? Frowde, Sa.
To exult, Even o'er an enemy oppressed, and heap Affliction on the afflicted, is the mask And the mean triumph of a dastard soul. Smollett, Reg. In this wild world the fondest and the best, Are the most tried, most troubled, and distress'd. Crabbe. I have not quailed to danger's brow When high and happy-need I now ? Byron, Giacur. Of all the horrid, hideous notes of woe, Sadder than owl-songs on the midnight blast, Is that portentous phrase, “I told you so," Utter'd by friends, those prophets of the past, Who 'stead of saying what you now should do, Own they foresaw that you would fall at last, And solace your slight lapse 'gainst “ bonos mores,' With a long memorandum of old stories. Byron, Don J. And fellow countrymen have stood aloof, In aught that tries the heart, how few withstand the proof!
Byron, Ch. H. The good are better made by ill,
As odours crush'd are better still. Rogers, Jacqueline. ADVICE.
Love thyself last; cherish those hearts that hate thee;
Sh. Hen. VII. III. 2.
I shall the effect of this good lesson keep
Sh. Hain. I. 3.
Love all, trust a few, Do wrong to none :
be able for thine enemy Rather in power than use ; and keep thy friend Under thy own life's key: be check'd for silence, But never tax'd for speech.
Sh. All's W. 1. 1. A wretched soul, bruis'd with adversity We bid be quiet, when we hear him cry; But were we burden'd with like weight of pain, As much, or more, we should ourselves complain.
Sh. Com. E. 11. 1. I pray thee, cease thy counsel Which falls into mine ears as profitless As water in a sieve.
Sh. Much A. v. 1. Learn to be wise, and practise how to thrive : That would I have thee do; and not to spend Your coin on every bauble that you fancy, Or every foolish brain that humours you. I would not have you to invade each place, Nor thrust yourself on all societies, Till men's affections, or your own desert, Should worthily invite you to your rank. He that is so respectless in his courses, Oft sells his reputation at cheap market. Ben Jonson. Know when to speak-for many times it brings Danger, to give the best advice to kings. Herrick, Aph. 245. Take sound advice, proceeding from the heart Sincerely yours, and free from fraudful art.
Dryden. When things go ill, each fool presumes to advise, And if more happy, thinks himself more wise ; All wretchedly deplore the present state, And that advice seems best which comes too late. Sedley. Learn to dissemble wrongs, to smile at injuries, And suffer crimes thou wanst the power to punish : Be easy, affable, familiar, friendly : Search, and know all mankind's mysterious ways; This is the way, this only, to be safe In such a world as this.
ADVICE - AFFECTION.

Maids, in modesty, say No to that Which they would have the profferer construe, Ay. Fie, fie ; how wayward is this foolish love, That like a testy babe will scratch the nurse, And presently, all humbled, kiss the rod! Sh. Two G. 1. 2. Why Affectation-why this mock grimace ? Go, silly thing, and hide that simpering, face ! Thy lisping prattle, and thy mincing gait, All thy false mimic fooleries I hate ; For thou art Folly's counterfeit, and she Who is right foolish hath the better plea : Nature's true idiot I prefer to thee !
Why, she would hang on him,
