Famous quotes containing the word milton:
“Blind mouths! that scarce themselves know how to hold
A sheephook, or have learnd ought else the least
That to the faithful herdmans art belongs!
What recks it them? What need they? They are sped.
And when they list their lean and flashy songs
Grate on their scrannel pipes of wretched straw,
The hungry sheep look up, and are not fed,”
—John Milton (16081674)
