NUMBER:3544
AUTHOR:Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
QUOTATION:But touch me, and no minister so sore;
Whoe’er offends at some unlucky time
Slides into verse, and hitches in a rhyme,
Sacred to ridicule his whole life long,
And the sad burden of some merry song.
ATTRIBUTION:Satires, Epistles, and Odes of Horace. Satire i. Book ii. Line 76.
