A Quote by Alexander Pope on death, joy, pain, spirit, thinking, and thought

Wise wretch! with pleasures too refined to please; With too much spirit to be e'er at ease With too much quickness ever to be taught; With too much thinking to have common thought. You purchase pain with all that joy can give, And die of nothing but a rage to live.

Alexander Pope (1688 - 1744)
