And there is even a happiness
That makes the heart afraid.
HOOD: _Ode to Melancholy._
Happiness depends, as Nature shows,
Less on exterior things than most suppose.
COWPER: _Table Talk,_ Line 246.
O happiness! our being's end and aim!
Good, pleasure, ease, content! whate'er thy name:
That something still which prompts the eternal sigh,
For which we bear to live, or dare to die.
POPE: _Essay on Man,_ Epis. iv., Line 1.
