Colonial Quotes

 


We've been running our Daily Colonial Quote feature for some time now, and the thought crossed our collective mind that some of these quotes may be of interest to you, Faithful Reader, in some other context than a randomized daily display: perhaps to be included in a report, an essay, presentation, or whatever.

Therefore, we decided to open up our collection of quotes to all, searchable by author or keyword. We hope you find them useful.

--The Colonial Sense Team

A democracy is a volcano which conceals the fiery materials of its own destruction. These will produce an eruption and carry desolation in their way.Fisher Ames
A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.Thomas Jefferson
A desire to be observed, considered, esteemed, praised, beloved, and admired by his fellows is one of the earliest as well as the keenest dispositions discovered in the heart of man.John Adams
A discontented young fellow, filled with self pride; he certainly should have considered it an honor to be sent on so respectable an embassy as he was.Zebulon Pike
A disordered currency is one of the greatest political evils.Daniel Webster
A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease.
John Muir
A few years' experience will convince us that those things which at the time they happened we regarded as our greatest misfortunes have proved our greatest blessings.George Mason
A good conscience is a continual Christmas.Benjamin Franklin
A government of laws, and not of men.John Adams
