Famous quotes containing the word dryden:

    Then for the Style; Majestick and Divine,
    It speaks no less than God in every Line:
    Commanding words; whose Force is still the same
    As the first Fiat that produc’d our Frame.
    —John Dryden (1631–1700)

    So, when the last and dreadful Hour
    This crumbling Pageant shall devour,
    The TRUMPET shall be heard on high,
    The dead shall live, the living die,
    And MUSICK shall untune the Sky.
    —John Dryden (1631–1700)

    Happy, happy, happy pair!
    None but the brave
    None but the brave
    None but the brave deserves the fair.
    —John Dryden (1631–1700)
