"The bustling World, to fetch her out from thence, / Will urge the various, plausible Pretence; / Will praise Perfections of a grander Name, / Sound great Exploíts, and call her out to Fame; / Amuse and flatter, till the Soul, too prone / To Self-activity, deserts her Throne."

— Byrom, John (1692-1763)
