Sayings By or For Southerners, Part XXXIII

 james johnston pettigrew

“Many fair fields and plains, full of mighty great woods with divers sorts of trees, as pleasant and delectable to behold, as is possible to imagine.
–French explorer Verrazano, Carolina coast, 1524

The South creates the civilizations. The North conquers them, ruins them, borrows from them, spreads them:  this is one summary of history.
–Will and Ariel Durant, Lessons of History
