Vivere quod propero pauper, nec inutilis annis

Da veniam, properat vivere nemo fatis.

For tell me, who makes hafte enough to live?

ANY words and sentences are so frequently heard in the mouths of men, that a su

perficial observer is inclined to believe, that they must contain some primary principle, some great rule of action, which it is proper always to have present to the attention, and by which the use of every hour is to be adjusted. Yet, if we consider the conduct of those sententious philosophers, it will often be found, that they repeat these aphorisms, merely because they have somewhere heard them, because they have nothing else to say, or because they think veneration gained by such appearances of wisdom, but that no ideas are annexed to the words, VOL, VI.
