Famous quotes containing the word edward:

    Histories of the world omitted China; if a Chinaman invented compass or movable type or gunpowder we promptly “forgot it” and named their European inventors. In short, we regarded China as a sort of different and quite inconsequential planet.
    —W.E.B. (William Edward Burghardt)
