Who is john milton hay?

Famous quotes containing the words john milton, hay and/or milton:

    Yet once more, O ye laurels, and once more,
    Ye myrtles brown, with ivy never-sere,
    I come to pluck your berries harsh and crude,
    And with forc’d fingers rude
    Shatter your leaves before the mellowing year.
    Bitter constraint and sad occasion dear
    Compels me to disturb your season due:
    For Lycidas is dead, dead ere his prime
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    I’ve never been afraid to step out and to reach out and to move out in order to make things happen.

    What reinforcement we may gain from hope;
    If not, what resolution from despair.
    —John Milton (1608–1674)
