Edward Gibbon Quotations

-History is indeed little more than the register of the crimes, follies and misfortunes of mankind.

-Unprovided with original learning, unformed in the habits of thinking, unskilled in the arts of composition, I resolved to write a book.

-All that is human must retrograde if it does not advance.

-The winds and the waves are always on the side of the ablest navigators.
Edward Gibbon
