A Quote by Alexander Pope on church, music, and words

As some to church repair, Not for the doctrine, but the music there. These equal syllables alone require, Though oft the ear the open vowels tire While expletives their feeble aid do join, And ten low words oft creep in one dull line.

Alexander Pope (1688 - 1744)
