Prince Daniel

Famous quotes containing the words prince and/or daniel:

    A chaplain is the minister of the Prince of Peace serving the host of the God of War—Mars. As such, he is as incongruous as a musket would be on the altar at Christmas. Why, then, is he there? Because he indirectly subserves the purpose attested by the cannon; because too he lends the sanction of the religion of the meek to that which practically is the abrogation of everything but brute Force.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    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)
