Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


But Britain, changeful as a child at play,
Now calls in princes, and now turns away;
Now Whig, now Tory, what we lov’d we hate;
Now all for pleasure, now for Church or State;
Now for Prerogative, and now for Laws;
Effects unhappy! from a noble cause.
Pope.—To Augustus, Epi. I. Line 155.
