Is privileg’d beyond the common walk
Of virtuous life, quite in the verge of heaven.“

where live his little span of life secure?

„Man is his own star, and the soul that can
Render an honest and a perfect man
Commands all light, all influence, all fate.
Nothing to him falls early, or too late.
Our acts our angels are, or good or ill,
Our fatal shadows that walk by us still.“
