„Adieu, for him,
The dull engagements of the bustling world!
Adieu the sick impertinence of praise!
And hope, and action! for with her alone,
By streams and shades, to steal these sighing hours,
Is all he asks, and all that fate can give!“
— Mark Akenside, livro The Pleasures of the Imagination
The Pleasures of the Imagination (1744), Book III, lines 173–178
