"Blest be the Prince, who thus his Power employs, / He moves in Smiles, and lives in circling Joys; / Superior to the Tyrant's savage Arts, / Founds his firm Empire on his Subjects Hearts; / From gentlest Virtues draws the noble Plan, / And proves the Monarch something more than Man."

— Pattison, William (1706-1727)
