John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:2982
AUTHOR:John Dryden (1631–1700)
QUOTATION:And raw in fields the rude militia swarms,
Mouths without hands; maintain’d at vast expense,
In peace a charge, in war a weak defence;
Stout once a month they march, a blustering band,
And ever but in times of need at hand.
ATTRIBUTION:Cymon and Iphigenia. Line 400.
