A sovereign’s great example forms a people; the public breast is noble or vile as he inspires it.
David Mallet QuotesShowing all quotes
David Mallet was a Scottish dramatist. He was educated at the University of Edinburgh, and went to London in 1723 to work as a private tutor. His best-known work was written in the same year: William and Margaret, adapted from a traditional ballad. His other plays and poetry, popular at the time, are largely forgotten, but Bolingbroke's writings were edited and published by Mallet in 1754. In 1726 he received the honorary degree of M.A. from the University of Aberdeen, ostensibly for an English poem in imitation of Ker's Donaides. He came into favour with the opposition, and was appointed, 27 May 1742, under-secretary to the Prince of Wales.
