Much may be done in those little shreds and patches of time, which every day produces, and which most men throw away, but which nevertheless will make at the end of it no small deduction from the life of man.
—  Charles Caleb Colton
The only things in which we can be said to have any property are our actions. Our thoughts may be bad, yet produce no poison; they may be good, yet produce no fruit. Our riches may be taken away by misfortune, our reputation by malice, our spirits by calamity, our health by disease, our friends by death. But our actions must follow us beyond the grave; with respect to them alone, we cannot say that we shall carry nothing with us when we die, neither that we shall go naked out of the world.
—  Charles Caleb Colton
To look back to antiquity is one thing, to go back to it is another.
—  Charles Caleb Colton
Tyrants have not yet discovered any chains that can fetter the mind.
—  Charles Caleb Colton
Where we cannot invent, we may at least improve; we may give somewhat of novelty to that which was old, condensation to that which was diffuse, perspicuity to that which was obscure, and currency to that which was recondite.
—  Charles Caleb Colton
He that will believe only what he can fully comprehend, must have a very long head or a very short creed.
—  Charles Caleb Colton
Times of general calamity and confusion have ever been productive of the greatest minds. The purest ore is produced from the hottest furnace, and the brightest thunderbolt is elicited from the darkest storm.
—  Charles Caleb Colton
None are so fond of secrets as those who do not mean to keep them.
—  Charles Caleb Colton
Two things, well considered, would prevent many quarrels: first, to have it well ascertained whether we are not disputing about terms rather than things and, second, to examine whether that on which we differ is worth contending about.
—  Charles Caleb Colton
Liberty will not descend to a people; a people must raise themselves to liberty; it is a blessing that must be earned before it can be enjoyed.
—  Charles Caleb Colton
