FULL TITLE: [g]Athenian Sport:[/g] | OR, | [i]Two Thousand Paradoxes[/i] | MERRILY ARGUED, | To Amuse and Divert the Age: | AS | [two columns] [column one] A Paradox in praise of a Paradox. | Corporeal Affections remain af-| ter Separation. | The Eye beholds as much when | it looks on a Shilling, as when | it speculates the whole Heaven. | Inconstancy is a most commen- | dable Virtue. | Every Man is corporally born | twice. | No Man sees but he that is | stark blind. | The Restor'd Maidenhead, or a | marry'd Woman may be | twice a Virgin. | [i]Athenian[/i], or Intellectual, Sport | is the Recreation of Pre-exis-| tent Spirits. | 'Tis the Pleasantest Life to be | always in Danger. [/column one] | [column two] The same numerical Voice of a | Preacher is not heard by any | two of his Auditors. | What we call Life, is Natural | Death. | Content is the greatest Misery. | He is the Happiest Man who has | neither Mony nor Friend. | Fruition's nothing, or a Paradox | proving there's no Pleasure | in Copulation. | To imprison a Debtor is to set | him at Liberty. | [i]Green[/i] come from the Dead, or no | Man lives but he that is Hang'd. | The Virgin-Paradox, or a Young | Lady may Love and Hate the | same Person at the same Time. | The Loving Shrew, or the Kind-| est Women are the most Cruel. [/column two] | And so on, to the Defence of 2000 [i]Paradoxes[/i] (or Pleasant | [i]Theses[/i]) which seem Strange, and Contrary to the | Common Opinion. | With Improvements from the Honourable Mr. [i]Boyle, Lock, Norris, | Collier, Cowley, Dryden, Garth, Addison,[/i] and other Illustrious Wits. | [rule] | [i]By a Member of the[/i] Athenian Society. [rule] [i]LONDON, Printed for [i]B. Bragg[/i] in [i]Pater-noster-Row[/i]. 1707.
