John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:2665
AUTHOR:John Milton (1608–1674)
QUOTATION:Some natural tears they dropp’d, but wip’d them soon;
The world was all before them, where to choose
Their place of rest, and Providence their guide.
They hand in hand, with wand’ring steps and slow,
Through Eden took their solitary way.
ATTRIBUTION:Paradise Lost. Book xii. Line 645.
