Quotations by John Dryden

All heiresses are beautiful.

All human things are subject to decay, and when fate summons, monarchs must obey.

All objects lose by too familiar a view.

Be slow to resolve, but quick in performance.

Beware the fury of a patient man.

Bold knaves thrive without one grain of sense, But good men starve for want of impudence.

Drinking is the soldier’s pleasure.

Even victors are by victories undone.

Far more numerous are those as such; who think too little and talk too much.

Fool that I was, upon my eagle’s wings I bore this wren, till I was tired with soaring, and now he mounts above me.
