Alexander Pope
1688 - 1744

British poet and satirist, author of the epic poems An Essay on Criticism (1711), The Rape of the Lock (1712), and other works


A little learning is a dangerous thing, drink deep or taste not the Pierian spring. There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain, And drinking largely sobers us again.

1711 - from An Essay on Criticism
Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.
