Samuel Daniel
The greatest works of admiration,
And all the fair examples of renown.
Out of distress and misery are grown.
Daniel quotes
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 the yet unformed Occident
May come refin'd with th' accents that are ours?
And for the few that only lend their ear,
That few is all the world.

Daniel Samuel quotes
As that the walls worn thin, permit the mind
To look out thorough, and his frailty find. 1
Daniel Samuel
Care-Charmer Sleep, son of the sable Night,
Brother to Death, in silent darkness born,
Relieve my languish, and restore the light;
With dark forgetting of my care return.
And let the day be time enough to mourn
The shipwreck of my ill adventured youth
Samuel Daniel quotes
Unless above himself he can
Erect himself, how poor a thing is man!
Samuel Daniel
Sacred religion! mother of form and fear.
