Famous quotes containing the words sir and/or milton:

    Well! If the Bard was weather-wise, who made
    The grand old ballad of Sir Patrick Spence,
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)

    To measure life learn thou betimes, and know
    Toward solid good what leads the nearest way;
    For other things mild Heaven a time ordains,

    And disapproves that care, though wise in show,
    That with superfluous burden loads the day,
    And, when God sends a cheerful hour, refrains.
    —John Milton (1608–1674)
