Famous quotes containing the word cromwell:

    No man rises so high as he knows not whither he goes.
    —Oliver Cromwell (1599–1658)

    He was not in the least a rhetorician, was not talking to Buncombe or his constituents anywhere, had no need to invent anything but to tell the simple truth, and communicate his own resolution; therefore he appeared incomparably strong, and eloquence in Congress and elsewhere seemed to me at a discount. It was like the speeches of Cromwell compared with those of an ordinary king.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A few honest men are better than numbers.
    —Oliver Cromwell (1599–1658)
