John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:2727
AUTHOR:John Milton (1608–1674)
QUOTATION:It is for homely features to keep home,—
They had their name thence; coarse complexions
And cheeks of sorry grain will serve to ply
The sampler and to tease the huswife’s wool.
What need a vermeil-tinctur’d lip for that,
Love-darting eyes, or tresses like the morn?
ATTRIBUTION:Comus. Line 748.
