A Quote by John Dryden on age, anxiety, caring, country, life, love, needs, peace, study, and youth

How blessed is he, who leads a country life, Unvex'd with anxious cares, and void of strife! Who studying peace, and shunning civil rage, Enjoy'd his youth, and now enjoys his age: All who deserve his love, he makes his own; And, to be lov'd himself, needs only to be known.

Oh, the world's a curious compound, with its honey and its gall, With its cares and bitter crosses, but a good world after all. An' a good God must have made it-leastways, that is what I say, When a hand is on my shoulder in a friendly sort o'way.
