„Live while you live, the epicure would say,
And seize the pleasures of the present day;
Live while you live, the sacred preacher cries,
And give to God each moment as it flies.
Lord, in my views, let both united be:
I live in pleasure when I live to thee.“
Epigram on his Family Arms, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
