A Quote by Charles Churchill

There webs were spread of more than common size, And half-starved spiders prey'd on half-starved flies.

A Quote by Charles Churchill on fame and planning

Who to patch up his fame, or fill his purse, Still pilfers wretched plans, and makes them worse; Like gypsies, lest the stolen brat be known, Defacing first, then claiming for his own.
