Fortune. Defined as that which is wrought
by the unseen hand of the Disposer of all
tnings. 450-I-5-. ,„ . ,

' 'All Superiority and Praeeminence that one

Man can have over another, may be reduced
to the Notion of Quality, which, considered
at large, is either that of Fortune, Body, or
Mind. The first is that which consists in
iiirth. Title or Riches, and is the most
foreign to our Natures, and what we can
the least call our own of any of the three
Kinds of Quality. In relation, to the Body,
(quality arises from HeaUh, Strength, or
Keauty, which are nearer to us, and more a
1 'art of our selves than the former. Quality,
as it regards the Mind, has its Rise from
K-nowledge or Virtue ; and is that which is
more essential to us, and more intimately
united with us than either of the other two.



(37 FBA

" The Quality of Fortune, tho' a_Man has
less Reason to value himself upon It than on
that of the Body or Mind, is however the
kind of Quality which makes the most shin-
ing Figure in the Eye of the World."

Friends and Friendship. "But the
Mind never unbends itself so agreeably as in
the Conversation of a well chosen Friend.
There is indeed no Blessing of Life that is
any way comparable to the Enjoyment of a
discreet and virtuous Friend. It eases and
unloads the Mind, clears and improves
the Understanding, engenders Thoughts and
Knowledge, animates Virtue and good Reso-
lution, sooths and allays the Passions, and
finds Employment for most of the vacant
Hours of Life." 148-1-3.

From Addison's Hymn.

Thy bounteous hand with worldly bltss
Has made my cup run o'er,
And in a kind and faithful friend
Has doubled all my store. 648-1-12.

And to dispart the Heart with Power

extreme^
Whether shall weigh the Ballance down ; to

ivit,
The dear Affection unto Kindred sweety
Or raging Fire of Love to Womenkind,
Or Zeal of Friends coinbind by Virtues

But, of thetn all, the Band of virtuous

Mind
Methinks the gentle Heart should most

For natural Affection soon doth cease^
Atid quenched is ivith Cupids greater

Flame;
But faithful Friendship doth them both

And them, with mastering Discipline does

Fame.
For as the Soul doth rule the Earthly

Mass,
And all the Service of the Body frame ;
So Love of Soul doth Lo7>e of Body pass.
No less tha7t perfect Gold surmounts the

vieanest Brass." 701-2-1.
