• “The more I see of the representatives of the people, the more I admire my dogs.”
• “There is a woman at the begining of all great things.”
• “Limited in his nature, infinite in his desire, man is a fallen god who remembers heaven.”

Sidney Lanier was a poet and musician best remembered for “The Marshes of Glynn” (1878), and “Sunrise” (1881) which are generally considered his greatest works.

Lanier, who was a Confederate soldier in the Civil War, was also a professor specializing in English novelists, Shakespeare, the Elizabethan sonneteers, Chaucer, and the Anglo-Saxon poets at Johns Hopkins University. His wrote two text books, The English Novel and The Science of English Verse. He also played flute with the Peabody Orchestra in Baltimore.
