Such is the Patriot’s boast, where’er we roam,
His first, best country, ever is at home.
Goldsmith.—The Traveller, Line 73.

’Tis mighty easy o’er a glass of wine
On vain refinements vainly to refine,
To laugh at poverty in plenty’s reign,
To boast of apathy when out of pain.
Churchill.—The Farewell, Line 47.

Where boasting ends, there dignity begins.
Dr. Young.—Night VIII. Line 509.
