NUMBER:2830
AUTHOR:John Milton (1608–1674)
QUOTATION:By this time, like one who had set out on his way by night, and travelled through a region of smooth or idle dreams, our history now arrives on the confines, where daylight and truth meet us with a clear dawn, representing to our view, though at a far distance, true colours and shapes.
ATTRIBUTION:The History of England. Book i.
