Famous quotes containing the word rest:

    Let no man write my epitaph; for as no man who knows my motives dare now vindicate them, let not prejudice or ignorance asperse them. Let them rest in obscurity and peace! Let my memory be left in oblivion, my tomb remain uninscribed, until other times and other men can do justice to my character.
    Robert Emmet (1778–1803)

    ... this nation is rotten at the heart, and ... nothing but the most tremendous blows with the sledge-hammer of abolition truth, could ever have broken the false rest which we had taken up for ourselves on the very brink of ruin.
    Angelina Grimké (1805–1879)

    They have a right to censure that have a heart to help: the rest is cruelty, not justice.
    William Penn (1644–1718)
