Massinger. MCXXVIII. Security diminishes the passions; the mind, when left to itself, immediately languishes; and, in order to preserve its ardour, must be every moment supported by a new flow of passion. For the same reason despair, though contrary to security, has a like influence.-Hume.

MCXXIX. So far is it from being true that men are naturally equal, that no two people can be half an hour together but one shall acquire an evident superiority over the other.-Johnson.
