Transcription: Moderate views and aims recommended / With Passions unruffled, untainted with pride, / By reason my life let me square, / The wants of my nature are cheaply supplied, / And the rest are but folly and care. / 2 / How vainly, through infinite trouble and strife, The many their labours employ, / Since all that is truly delightful in life, / Is what all, if they Please, may enjoy
