William Jennings Bryan Quotes WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN QUOTES


William Jennings Bryan (1860-1925)

U.S. politician

The humblest citizen of all the land, when clad in the armor of a righteous cause, is stronger than all the hosts of error.

WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN, speech at 1896 Democratic National Convention

Burn down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again as if by magic; but destroy our farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country.

WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN, speech at Chicago Convention, Jul. 8, 1896

Science is a magnificent force, but it is not a teacher of morals. It can perfect machinery, but it adds no moral restraints to protect society from the misuse of the machine. It can also build gigantic intellectual ships, but it constructs no moral rudders for the control of storm tossed human vessel. It not only fails to supply the spiritual element needed but some of its unproven hypotheses rob the ship of its compass and thus endangers its cargo.

WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN, undelivered summation of the Scopes 'Monkey' Trial in Dayton, Tennessee, 1925
