Excerpt from Lectures on Rhetoric and Belles Lettres, Vol. 2 of 3

In the fecond place, figures, in order to be beautiful, mul't always rife naturally from the fubjefi. I have ihown that all of them are the language either of imagination, or of pallion; fome of them fuggefied by imagination, when itis awakened and fprightly, fuch as metaphors arid compatirons; others, by paflion or more heated emotion fuch as perl'onifications and ipoftrophes. Of courfe they are beautiful then only, when they are prompted by fancy, or by pallion. They mull rife of their own accord; they mufi flow from a mind warmed by the objefi which it leeks to defcribe; we lhould never interrupt the comic of thought to call.
