Quotations[]

  • Template:RQ:Authorized Version: Daniel 6: 16:
    Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee.
  • ~1594 William Shakespeare: The Merchant of Venice: Act IV, Scene I:
    A Daniel come to judgment! yea, a Daniel!
    O wise young judge, how do I honour thee!
  • 1989 John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany, Corgi Books, ISBN 0552135399, page 55:
    "His name is Daniel Needham," my mother said. Whew! With what relief - down came my grandmother's hands! Needham was a fine old name, a founding fathers sort of name, a name you could trace back to the Massachusetts Bay Colony - if not exactly Gravesend itself. And Daniel was as Daniel as Daniel Webster, which was as good a name as a Wheelwright could wish for.
    "But he's called Dan," my mother added, bringing a slight frown to my grandmother's countenance.
