Sir Walter Raleigh Quotes


6 Sir Walter Raleigh quotes:



"Historians desiring to write the actions of men, ought to set down the simple truth, and not say anything for love or hatred; also to choose such an opportunity for writing as it may be lawful to think what they will, and write what they think, which is a rare happiness of the time."

Howsoever, he that for want of will or wit useth not those means, must rest in servitude and poverty."
