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.
