Famous quotes containing the words test and/or allen:
“First follow Nature, and your judgment frame
By her just standard, which is still the same;
Unerring Nature, still divinely bright,
One clear, unchanged, and universal light,
Life, force, and beauty must to all impart,
At once the source, and end, and test of art.”
—Alexander Pope (16881744)

Oh, to be back in the land of Coca-Cola!”
