More From John Dryden
- "Beauty, like ice, our footing does betray; Who can tread sure on the smooth, slippery way: Pleased with the surface, we glide swiftly on, And see the dangers that we cannot shun."

- "By education most have been misled; So they believe, because they were bred. The priest continues where the nurse began, And thus the child imposes on the man."
