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.

Damn the sword! When Virginia wanted a sword, I gave her one. Now she sends me a toy! I require bread!George Rogers Clark
Delay is preferable to error.Thomas Jefferson
Democracy shows not only its power in reforming governments, but in regenerating a race of men and this is the greatest blessing of free governments.Andrew Jackson
Democracy... while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.John Adams
Democratical States must always feel before they can see: it is this that makes their Governments slow, but the people will be right at last.
- Letter to Marquis de Lafayette, July 25, 1785
George Washington
Dependence begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the designs of ambition.
- Notes on the State of Virginia, Query 19, 1787
Thomas Jefferson
Despotism can only exist in darkness, and there are too many lights now in the political firmament to permit it to remain anywhere, as it has heretofore done, almost everywhere.James Madison
Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time, who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done, if we are always doing. And that you may be always doing good, my dear, is the ardent prayer of yours affectionately.
- Letter to Martha Jefferson, May 5, 1787
Thomas Jefferson
Did you ever see a portrait of a great man without perceiving strong traits of pain and anxiety? John Adams
Difference of opinion is advantageous in religion. The several sects perform the office of a Censor - over each other.Thomas Jefferson
Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict.William Ellery
Diligence is the mother of good luck.Benjamin Franklin
Discipline is the soul of an army. It makes small numbers formidable; procures success to the weak, and esteem to all.George Washington
Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.Henry David Thoreau
Distrust and caution are the parents of security.Benjamin Franklin
Distrust any enterprise that requires new clothes. Henry David Thoreau
Disunion by force is treason.Andrew Jackson
Do good to your friends to keep them, to your enemies to win them.Benjamin Franklin
Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life so. Aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something.Henry David Thoreau
Do not bite at the bait of pleasure, till you know there is no hook beneath it.Thomas Jefferson
