  • ⋅In Italy, on the breaking up of the Roman Empire, society might be said to be resolved into its original elements, - into hostile atoms, whose only movement was that of mutual repulsion. /Edward Everett
  • ⋅What subsists to-day by violence continues to-morrow by acquiescence and is perpetuated by tradition; till at last the hoary abuse shakes the gray hairs of antiquity at us, and gives it-self out as the wisdom of ages. /Edward Everett

  • ⋅The highest historical probability can be adduced in support of the proposition that, if it were possible to annihilate the Bible, and with it all its influences, we should destroy with it the whole spiritual system of the moral world. /Edward Everett
  • ⋅A great character, founded on the living rock of principle is, in fact, not a solitary phenomenon, to be at once perceived, limited, and described.

It survives the man who possessed it; survives his age,--and perhaps, his country, his language. /Edward Everett
  • ⋅An earthly immortality belongs to a great and good character.

  • ⋅Beneath a free government there is nothing but the intelligence of the people to keep the people's peace.

  • ⋅When every brake hath found its note, and sunshine smiles in every flower. /Edward Everett

Generations unborn shall enjoy its privileges as we have done; and if we leave them poor in all besides, we will transmit to them the boundless wealth of its blessings! /Edward Everett
  • ⋅Does it seem all but incredible to you that intelligence should travel for two thousand miles, along those slender copper lines, far down in the all but fathomless Atlantic; never before penetrated … save when some foundering vessel has plunged with her hapless company to the eternal silence and darkness of the abyss? Does it seem … but a miracle … that the thoughts of living men … should burn over the cold, green bones of men and women, whose hearts, once as warm as ours, burst as the eternal gulfs closed and /Edward Everett
  • ⋅Drop a grain of California gold into the ground, and there it will lie unchanged until the end of time; . . . drop a grain of our blessed gold [wheat] into the ground and lo! a mystery. /Edward Everett

  • ⋅You shall not pile, with servile toil,
    Your monuments upon my breast,
    Nor yet within the common soil
    Lay down the wreck of power to rest . . . /Edward Everett

  • ⋅Agriculture seems to be the first pursuit of civilized man. It enables him to escape from the life of the savage, and wandering shepherd, into that of social man, gathered into fixed communities and surrounding himself with the comforts and blessings of neighborhood, country, and home. It is agriculture alone, that fixes men in stationary dwellings, in villages, in towns, and cities, and enables the work of civilizations, in all its branches, to go on. /Edward Everett
  • ⋅Education is a better safeguard of liberty than a standing army. If we retrench the wages of the schoolmaster, we must raise those of the recruiting sergeant. /Edward Everett

  • ⋅Though a hundred crooked paths may conduct to a temporary success, the one plain and straight path of public and private virtue can alone lead to a pure and lasting fame and the blessings of posterity. /Edward Everett
