5 Famous Quotes by John Dyer
The solitary, silent, solemn scene,
Where Caesars, heroes, peasants, hermits lie,
Blended in dust together; where the slave
Rests from his labors; where th' insulting proud
Resigns his powers; the miser drops his hoard:
Where human folly sleeps.

And he that will this health deny,
Down among the dead men let him lie.
Quotes, by John Dyer , Source: From a Toast published during the Reign of Queen Anne
So little distant dangers seem:
So we mistake the future's face,
Ey'd thro' Hope's deluding glass;
As yon summits soft and fair,
Clad in colours of the air,
Which to those who journey near,
Barren, brown, and rough appear.
Quotes, by John Dyer , Source: Gronger Hill (l. 884)
While the wanton Zephyr sings,
And in the vale perfumes his wings.
Quotes, by John Dyer , Source: Gronger Hill
And see the rivers how they run
Through woods and meads, in shade and sun,
Sometimes swift, sometimes slow,--
Wave succeeding wave, they go
A various journey to the deep,
Like human life to endless sleep!
