William Cobbett

Having still in my recollection so many excellent men, to whose grandfathers, upon the same spots, my grandfather had yielded cheerful obedience and reverence, it is not without sincere sorrow that I have beheld many of the sons of these men driven from their fathers' mansions, or holding them as little better than tenants or stewards, while the swarms of Placemen, Pensioners, Contractors, and Nabobs...have usurped a large part of the soil.More William Cobbett quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

It is by attempting to reach the top in a single leap that so much misery is produced in the world.More William Cobbett quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To be poor and independent is very nearly an impossibility.More William Cobbett quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
