„Then in chat, or at play, with a dance, or a song,
Let the night, like the day, pass with pleasure along.
All cares, but of love, banish far from your mind;
And those you may end, when you please to be kind.“
— Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield British statesman and man of letters 1694 - 1773
