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
You can bear your own faults, and why not a fault in your wife?Benjamin Franklin
You can get assent to almost any proposition so long as you are not going to do anything about it.Nathaniel Hawthorne
You give me a credit to which I have no claim in calling me "the writer of the Constitution of the United States." This was not, like the fabled Goddess of Wisdom, the offspring of a single brain. It ought to be regarded as the work of many heads and many hands.
- Letter to William Cogswell, March 10, 1834
James Madison
You have already disarmed my men without my knowledge, are their arms to be returned or not?Zebulon Pike
You may delay, but time will not.Benjamin Franklin
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.Henry David Thoreau
You must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing.Andrew Jackson
You seem ... to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy... The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal.
- 1820
Thomas Jefferson
Your dear baby has died innocent and blameless, and has been called away by an all wise and merciful Creator, most probably from a life to misery and misfortune, and most certainly to one of happiness and bliss.George Mason
Your former Fathers the Spaniards have now no further Authority over you.Zebulon Pike
Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones.Benjamin Franklin
