Famous quotes containing the words french and/or daniel:

    The French are nice people. I allow them to sing and to write, and they allow me to do whatever I like.
    Jules Mazarin (c. 1602–1661)

    There, full in notes, to ravish all
    My Earth, I wonder what to call
    My dullness; when
    I heare thee, prettie Creature, bring
    Thy better odes of Praise, and Sing,
    To puzzle men:
    Poore pious Elfe!
    I am instructed by thy harmonie,
    To sing the Time’s uncertaintie,
    Safe in my Selfe.
    —George Daniel (1616–1657)
