WILLIAM H. PRESCOTT
American historian
(1796 - 1859)

Self-interest, be it enlightened, works indirectly for the public good.
      - [Public]

The history of literature is the history of the human mind. It is, as compared with other histories, the intellectual as distinguished from the material, the informing spirit as compared with the outward and visible.
      - [Literature]

The triumphs of the warrior are bounded by the narrow theatre of his own age. But those of a Scott, or a Shakespeare, will be renewed, with greater and greater lustre, in ages yet unborn, when the victorious chieftain shall be forgotten, or shall live only in the song of the minstrel, and the page of the chronicler.
      - History of the Reign of Ferdinand and Isabella, the Catholic
        [Fame]
