Famous quotes containing the word candidate:

    Hear, then, a mortal Muse thy praise rehearse,
    In no ignoble verse;
    But such as thy own voice did practise here,
    When thy first-fruits of Poesy were given,
    To make thyself a welcome inmate there;
    While yet a young probationer,
    And candidate of Heaven.
    John Dryden (1631–1700)
