Famous quotes containing the words bristol and/or history:

    It’s of a rich squire in Bristol doth dwell,
    There are ladies of honour that love him well,
    But all was in vain, in vain was said,
    For he was in love with a charming milkmaid.
    —Unknown. Squire and Milkmaid; or, Blackberry Fold (l. 1–4)

    The history of his present majesty, is a history of unremitting injuries and usurpations ... all of which have in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world, for the truth of which we pledge a faith yet unsullied by falsehood.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
