NUMBER:352
AUTHOR:Samuel Daniel (1562?–1619)
QUOTATION:And who (in time) knows whither we may vent
  The treasure of our tongue? To what strange shores
This gain of our best glory shall be sent
  T’ enrich unknowing nations with our stores?
What worlds in the yet unformed Occident
  May come refin’d with th’ accents that are ours? 1
