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

QuoteAuthor
Walking is the best possible exercise. Habituate yourself to walk very fast.Thomas Jefferson
War - An act of violence whose object is to constrain the enemy, to accomplish our will.George Washington
War contains so much folly, as well as wickedness, that much is to be hoped from the progress of reason.James Madison
War involves in its progress such a train of unforeseen circumstances that no human wisdom can calculate the end; it has but one thing certain, and that is to increase taxes.Thomas Paine
War is a blessing compared with national degradation.Andrew Jackson
War is an instrument entirely inefficient toward redressing wrong; and multiplies, instead of indemnifying losses.Thomas Jefferson
War should only be declared by the authority of the people, whose toils and treasures are to support its burdens, instead of the government which is to reap its fruits.James Madison
War, like most other things, is a science to be acquired and perfected by diligence, by perseverance, by time, and by practice.
- Federalist No. 25, December 21, 1787
Alexander Hamilton
Wars are not paid for in wartime, the bill comes later.Benjamin Franklin
We are all agents of the same supreme power, the people.Daniel Webster
We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.Benjamin Franklin
We are always paid for our suspicion by finding what we suspect.Henry David Thoreau
We are beginning a new era in our government. I cannot too strongly urge the necessity of a rigid economy and an inflexible determination not to enlarge the income beyond the real necessities of the government.Andrew Jackson
We are bound to defray expenses [of the war] within our own time, and are unauthorized to burden posterity with them.... We shall all consider ourselves morally bound to pay them ourselves and consequently within the life [expectancy] of the majority Thomas Jefferson
We are either a United people, or we are not. If the former, let us, in all maters of general concern act as a nation, which have national objects to promote, and a national character to support. If we are not, let us no longer act a farce by pretending to it.
- Letter to James Madison, November 30, 1785
George Washington
We are more thoroughly an enlightened people, with respect to our political interests, than perhaps any other under heaven. Every man among us reads, and is so easy in his circumstances as to have leisure for conversations of improvement and for acquiring information.Benjamin Franklin
We are not to expect to be translated from despotism to liberty in a featherbed.Thomas Jefferson
We are not what we are, nor do we treat or esteem each other for such, but for what we are capable of being.Henry David Thoreau
We are right to take alarm at the first experiment upon our liberties.James Madison
We are teaching the world the great truth that Governments do better without Kings & Nobles than with them. The merit will be doubled by the other lesson that Religion Flourishes in greater purity, without than with the aid of Government.
- Letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822
James Madison
