Fielding, H. (n.d.). The Temple Beau. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Will?s has resign?d its old Pretence to Wit, And Beaux appear, where Criticks us?d to sit. Button himself, provok?d at Wit?s Decline, Now Lets his House, and swears he'll Burn his Sign. Ah! shou?d all others that on Wit depend, Like him, Provok?d; like him, their Dealings end; Our Theatres might take th? Example too, And Players starve themselves as Authors do. But, if the gay, the courtly World disdain To hear the Muses and their Sons complain; Each injur?d Bard shall to this Refuge fly, And find that Comfort, which the Great deny: Shall frequently employ this Infant Stage, And boldly aim to wake a dreaming Age. The Comick Muse, in Smiles severely gay, Shall scoff at Vice, and laugh its Crimes away. The Voice of Sorrow pine in Tragick Lays, And claim your Tears, as the sincerest Praise. Merit, like Indian Gems, is rarely found; Obscure, ?tis sullied with the common Ground: But when it blazes in the World?s broad Eye, All own the Charms, they pass?d unheeded by. Be you the first t'explore the latent Prize, And raise its Value, as its Beauties rise. Convince that Town, which boasts its better Breeding, That Riches are not all that you exceed in. Merit, where?ever found, is still the same, And this our Stage may be the Road to Fame.
