A Quote by St. George Tucker on honor, judgment, life, and wealth

There was a sorry judge who lived at the Swan by himself. He got but little honor, and he got but little pelf [i.e. wealth], He drudged and judged from morn to night, no ass drudged more than he, And the more he drudged, and the more he judged, the sorrier judge was he.

St. George Tucker (1751 - 1827)
