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.

Objects of the most stupendous magnitude, and measure in which the lives and liberties of millions yet unborn are intimately interested, are now before us. We are in the very midst of a revolution the most complete, unexpected and remarkable of any in the history of nations
- Letter to William Cushing, June 9, 1776
John Adams
Observe all men, thyself most.Benjamin Franklin
Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all.
- Farewell Address, September 19, 1796
George Washington
Of all human powers operating on the affairs of mankind, none is greater than that of competition.Henry Clay
Of all the cares or concerns of government, the direction of war most peculiarly demands those qualities which distinguish the exercise of power by a single hand. The direction of war implies the direction of the common strength; and the power of directing and employing the common strength, forms a usual and essential part in the definition of the executive authority.
- Federalist No. 74, March 25, 1788
Alexander Hamilton
Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens... Let it simply be asked, where is the security for property, for reputation, for live, in the sense of religious obligations desert and oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of Justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education ... reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. George Washington
Of all the enemies of public liberty, war is perhaps the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other.James Madison
Of all the properties which belong to honorable men, not one is so highly prized as that of character.Henry Clay
Of all the tyrannies that affect mankind, tyranny in religion is the worst.Thomas Paine
Of those men who have overturned the liberties of republics, the greatest number have begun their career by paying an obsequious court to the people, commencing demagogues and ending tyrants
- Federalist No. 1, October 27, 1787
Alexander Hamilton
Oh for a fleet that could look the pourdest power in Europe in the face, on this our rightful Western Ocean! But alas, it must be left to posterity -- at the age of 50 I can't expect to view it unless from above.Edward Rutledge
Oh, eternal and everlasting God, direct my thoughts, words and work. Wash away my sins in the immaculate blood of the lamb and purge my heart by the Holy Spirit. Daily, frame me more and more in the likeness of thy son, Jesus Christ, that living in thy fear, and dying in thy favor, I may in thy appointed time obtain the resurrection of the justified unto eternal life. Bless, O Lord, the whole race of mankind and let the world be filled with the knowledge of thy son, Jesus Christ.
- Personal Prayer Book
George Washington
Old deeds for old people, and new deeds for new.Henry David Thoreau
Old minds are like old horses; you must exercise them if you wish to keep them in working order.John Adams
On every unauthoritative exercise of power by the legislature must the people rise in rebellion or their silence be construed into a surrender of that power to them? If so, how many rebellions should we have had already? Thomas Jefferson
On no further occasion present a flag or medal to an Indian.Zebulon Pike
On receiving from the people the sacred trust twice confided on my illustrious predecessor, and which he has discharged so faithfully and so well, I know that I can not expect to perform the arduous task with equal ability and success.Martin Van Buren
On the diffusion of education among the people rest the preservation and perpetuation of our free institutions.Daniel Webster
On the distinctive principles of the Government ... of the U. States, the best guides are to be found in... The Declaration of Independence, as the fundamental Act of Union of these States.
- Letter to Thomas Jefferson, February 8, 1825
James Madison
One country, one constitution, one destiny.Daniel Webster
