Samuel Johnson (1709-1784), "To Urbanus," lines 17-20 (tr. Niall Rudd):
No page is more welcome to the Muses than that which knows how to combine grave and gay, and to refresh the weary mind with helpful trifles.

Non ulla Musis pagina gratior
Quam quae severis ludicra iungere
    Novit, fatigatamque nugis
        Utilibus recreare mentem.
