1811 – 1884
Who was Wendell Phillips?
- What the Puritans gave the world was not thought, but action.
- Write on my gravestone: Infidel, Traitor.--infidel to every church that compromises with wrong; traitor to every government that oppresses the people.
- One on God's side is a majority.
- Law is nothing unless close behind it stands a warm, living public opinion.
- Many know how to flatter, few know how to praise.
- If you want to be an orator, first get your great cause.
- What gunpowder did for war the printing press has done for the mind.
- Responsibility educates.
- The best education in the world is that got by struggling to get a living.
- Revolutions are not made, they come.
