• Our grandsire, Adam, ere of Eve possesst,
    Alone, and e'en in Paradise unblest,
    With mournful looks the blissful scenes survey'd,
    And wander'd in the solitary shade.
    The Maker say, took pity, and bestow'd
    Woman, the last, the best reserv'd of God.

    Alexander Pope, Alexander Dyce (1851). “The poetical works of Alexander Pope”, p.255
