BEHOLD the silly bird; how proudly vain
The peacock is a bird known to most countries for its fine plumage, which, indeed, seems to be all it has to boast of; for, its voice is a frightful ore; and the flesh of it,
though a rarity, is generally said to have no very delicate flavour. The pride this bird takes in its plumage, and the ill tone of its voice, are both equally become proverbs; and it is worth while to observe, that the former circumstance has served to make the latter more remarkable.
Like the proud peacock, is the son of vanity :-and surely it is more ridiculous in a rational creature to indulge this pride, than in an unreasoning animal.
But of what is the vainglorious man proud? Of his dress? Surely the peacock has more reason to be proud of what nature gave him, than man has of that covering, for which at best, he is obliged to brutes, or to the vegetable creation.
`Is it ofthe beauties of his person any one is vain? Let him consider how shortly sickness or accident may, and how certainly old age must, if he attain to it, deprive him of these. Let him consider likewise, how worthless they are at best, without the beauties of the mind.
To be vain even of great talents is absurd. Whatever man possesses comes from Heaven; to Heaven then let him give the glory, and always remember, that the wisest of men are far from being the proudest, according to those lines of the poet :
What is it to be wise ?
In short, every sensible person must be convinced, that nothing is so odious as pride,. nothing so childish as vatnglory.
Come, I will show you what is beautiful. It is the rose fully blown. See how she sits upon her mossy stem, like the queen of all the flowers! her leaves glow with fire. The air is filled with her sweet odour; she is the delight of every eye.
She is beautiful, but there is one fairer than she. He that made the rose, is more beautiful than the rose: he is all lovely; he is the delight of every heart.
