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


Live while you live, the epicure will say,
And take the pleasure of the present day:
Live while you live, the sacred preacher cries,
And give to God each moment as it flies.
Lord, in my view let both united be,
I live in pleasure when I live to Thee!
Dr. Doddridge.

From the time we first began to know,
We live and learn, but not the wiser grow.

For living long sin hath the greater space,
And dying well they find the greater grace.
Greene.—A Maiden’s Dream, 4th verse from end.
