Famous quotes containing the words daniel and/or mainwaring:

    And who, in time, knows whither we may vent
    The treasure of our tongue, to what strange shores
    This gain of our best glory shall be sent,
    T’enrich unknowing nations with our stores?
    What worlds in th’yet unformed Occident
    May come refined with th’accents that are ours?
    —Samuel Daniel (c.1562–1619)

    At first glance, everything looked the same. It wasn’t. Something evil had taken possession of the town.
    —Daniel Mainwaring (1902–1977)
