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.

QuoteAuthor
Gain may be temporary and uncertain; but ever while you live, expense is constant and certain: and it is easier to build two chimneys than to keep one in fuel.Benjamin Franklin
Games lubricate the body and the mind.Benjamin Franklin
Generally speaking, a howling wilderness does not howl: it is the imagination of the traveler that does the howling.Henry David Thoreau
Genius is sorrow's child.John Adams
Genius without education is like silver in the mine.Benjamin Franklin
Gentlemen, you will permit me to put on my spectacles, for, I have grown not only gray, but almost blind in the service of my country.
- Upon fumbling for his glasses before delivering theNewburgh Address, March 15, 1783
George Washington
Give immediate instruction to all your posts in said territory, under your direction, at no time and on no pretence to hoist, or suffer be hoisted, the English flag.Zebulon Pike
Give up money, give up fame, give up science, give the earth itself and all it contains rather than do an immoral act. And never suppose that in any possible situation, or under any circumstances, it is best for you to do a dishonorable thing, however slightly so it may appear to you... From the practice of the purest virtue, you may be assured you will derive the most sublime comforts in every moment of life, and in the moment of death.
- Letter to Peter Carr, August 19, 1785
Thomas Jefferson
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.Henry David Thoreau
God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it.Daniel Webster
God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand tempests and floods. But he cannot save them from fools. John Muir
God helps them that help themselves
- Poor Richard's Almanack
Benjamin Franklin
God reigns when we take a liberal view, when a liberal view is presented to us.Henry David Thoreau
God works wonders now and then; Behold a lawyer, an honest man.Benjamin Franklin
Good constitutions are formed upon a comparison of the liberty of the individual with the strength of government: If the tone of either be too high, the other will be weakened too much. It is the happiest possible mode of conciliating these objects, to institute one branch peculiarly endowed with sensibility, another with knowledge and firmness. Through the opposition and mutual control of these bodies, the government will reach, in its regular operations, the perfect balance between liberty and power.
- Speech to the New York Ratifying Convention, June 25, 1788
Alexander Hamilton
Goodness is the only investment that never fails.Henry David Thoreau
Government implies the power of making laws. It is essential to the idea of a law, that it be attended with a sanction; or, in other words, a penalty or punishment for disobedience.
- Federalist No. 15, 1787
Alexander Hamilton
Government is a trust, and the officers of the government are trustees. And both the trust and the trustees are created for the benefit of the people.Henry Clay
Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it.
- Thoughts on Government, 1776
John Adams
Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well that which lies in the various rights of individuals, as that which the term particularly expresses. This being the end of government, that alone is a just government which impartially secures to every man whatever is his own.
- Essay on Property, March 29, 1792
James Madison
