shalt look round upon all that is present with disgust; anticipate all that is future, with dread; and retain thy sensibility, only for pain and anguish. This time appears to thee, to be far diftant-but alas ! thou art deceived, it approaches with irrefistible rapidity, and is, therefore, at hand : that which draws near so fast, can never be remote ; and the present, for ever flying, is remote already ; even while we speak it is past, and it returns no more.

Let the prefent, therefore, be light in thy estimation; tread the path of virtue, however rugged, with perseverance, and fix thine eye up-. on futurity.
