Cytaty John Dryden

„Wystrzegaj się furii człowieka cierpliwego.“

—  John Dryden
Źródło: Absalom and Achitophel, 1681

„Content with poverty, my soul I arm;
And virtue, though in rags, will keep me warm.“

—  John Dryden
Context: I can enjoy her while she's kind; But when she dances in the wind, And shakes the wings and will not stay, I puff the prostitute away: The little or the much she gave is quietly resign'd: Content with poverty, my soul I arm; And virtue, though in rags, will keep me warm. On Fortune; Book III, Ode 29, lines 81–87.

„From harmony, from heavenly harmony,
This universal frame began:
From harmony to harmony
Through all the compass of the notes it ran,
The diapason closing full in Man.“

—  John Dryden
Context: From harmony, from heavenly harmony, This universal frame began: When nature underneath a heap Of jarring atoms lay, And could not heave her head, The tuneful voice was heard from high, 'Arise, ye more than dead!' Then cold, and hot, and moist, and dry, In order to their stations leap, And Music's power obey. From harmony, from heavenly harmony, This universal frame began: From harmony to harmony Through all the compass of the notes it ran, The diapason closing full in Man. St. 1.

„The wise, for cure, on exercise depend;
God never made his work for man to mend.“

—  John Dryden
Context: Better to hunt in fields, for health unbought, Than fee the doctor for a nauseous draught. The wise, for cure, on exercise depend; God never made his work for man to mend. Epistle to John Driden of Chesterton (1700), lines 92–95.

„I am as free as Nature first made man,
Ere the base laws of servitude began“

—  John Dryden
Context: I am as free as Nature first made man, Ere the base laws of servitude began, When wild in woods the noble savage ran. Part 1, Act I, scene i.

„Preventing angels met it half the way,
And sent us back to praise, who came to pray.“

—  John Dryden
Context: Our vows are heard betimes! and Heaven takes care To grant, before we can conclude the prayer: Preventing angels met it half the way, And sent us back to praise, who came to pray. Britannia Rediviva (1688), line 1.

„Not heaven itself upon the past has power;
But what has been, has been, and I have had my hour.“

—  John Dryden
Context: Be fair, or foul, or rain, or shine, The joys I have possessed, in spite of fate, are mine. Not heaven itself upon the past has power; But what has been, has been, and I have had my hour. Book III, Ode 29, lines 69–72.

„None but the brave deserves the fair.“

—  John Dryden
Context: Happy, happy, happy pair! None but the brave, None but the brave, None but the brave deserves the fair. l. 12–15.

„If others in the same Glass better see
'Tis for Themselves they look, but not for me:
For my Salvation must its Doom receive
Not from what others, but what I believe.“

—  John Dryden
Context: More Safe, and much more modest 'tis, to say God wou'd not leave Mankind without a way: And that the Scriptures, though not every where Free from Corruption, or intire, or clear, Are uncorrupt, sufficient, clear, intire, In all things which our needfull Faith require. If others in the same Glass better see 'Tis for Themselves they look, but not for me: For my Salvation must its Doom receive Not from what others, but what I believe. Religio Laici (1682).

„What flocks of critics hover here to-day,
As vultures wait on armies for their prey,
All gaping for the carcase of a play!“

—  John Dryden
Context: What flocks of critics hover here to-day, As vultures wait on armies for their prey, All gaping for the carcase of a play! With croaking notes they bode some dire event, And follow dying poets by the scent. Prologue
