A man severe he was, and stern to view;I knew him well, and every truant knew:Well had the boding tremblers learned to traceThe day's disasters in his morning face;Full well they laughed with counterfeited glee,At all his jokes, for many a joke had he;Full well the bust whisper, circling round,Conveyed the dismal tidings when he frowned;Yet he was kind; or if severe in aught,The love he bore to learning was in fault;The village all declared how much he knew;'Twas certain he could write, and cipher too.Oliver Goldsmith
What is the end of Fame?

And the Raven, never flitting, Still is sitting, still is sitting On the pallid bust of Pallas Just above my chamber door; And his eyes have all the seeming Of a demon's that is dreaming, And the lamplight o'er him streaming Throws his shadow on the floor, And my soul from out that shadow, That lies floating on the floor, Shall be lifted nevermore.
