- Quotations From John Lothrop Motley - 5/26 -


Eight thousand human beings were murdered Everything was conceded, but nothing was secured Fanatics of the new religion denounced him as a godless man Glory could be put neither into pocket nor stomach He would have no Calvinist inquisition set up in its place He would have no persecution of the opposite creed In character and general talents he was beneath mediocrity Indecision did the work of indolence Insinuate that his orders had been hitherto misunderstood King set a price upon his head as a rebel No man could reveal secrets which he did not know Of high rank but of lamentably low capacity Pope excommunicated him as a heretic Preventing wrong, or violence, even towards an enemy They could not invent or imagine toleration Uunmeaning phrases of barren benignity

RISE OF THE DUTCH REPUBLIC, 1576-77 by Motley[#26][jm26v10.txt]4826

A terrible animal, indeed, is an unbridled woman Agreements were valid only until he should repent All Protestants were beheaded, burned, or buried alive Arrive at their end by fraud, when violence will not avail them Attachment to a half-drowned land and to a despised religion Barbara Blomberg, washerwoman of Ratisbon Believed in the blessed advent of peace Compassing a country's emancipation through a series of defeats Don John of Austria Don John was at liberty to be King of England and Scotland Ferocity which even Christians could not have surpassed Happy to glass themselves in so brilliant a mirror His personal graces, for the moment, took the rank of virtues Necessary to make a virtue of necessity One-half to Philip and one-half to the Pope and Venice (slaves) Quite mistaken: in supposing himself the Emperor's child Sentimentality that seems highly apocryphal She knew too well how women were treated in that country Those who fish in troubled waters only to fill their own nets Worn crescents in their caps at Leyden

RISE OF THE DUTCH REPUBLIC, 1577 by Motley[#27][jm27v10.txt]4827

A good lawyer is a bad Christian Claimed the praise of moderation that their demands were so few Confused conferences, where neither party was entirely sincere Customary oaths, to be kept with the customary conscientiousness Deadliest of sins, the liberty of conscience I regard my country's profit, not my own Made no breach in royal and Roman infallibility Neither wished the convocation, while both affected an eagerness Our pot had not gone to the fire as often Peace, in reality, was war in its worst shape Those who "sought to swim between two waters" Volatile word was thought preferable to the permanent letter

RISE OF THE DUTCH REPUBLIC, 1577 by Motley[#28][jm28v10.txt]4828

Country would bear his loss with fortitude Its humility, seemed sufficiently ironical Not upon words but upon actions Perfection of insolence Was it astonishing that murder was more common than fidelity?

RISE OF THE DUTCH REPUBLIC, 1577-78 by Motley[#29][jm29v10.txt]4829

Absurd affectation of candor Always less apt to complain of irrevocable events Imagined, and did the work of truth Judas Maccabaeus Neither ambitious nor greedy Superfluous sarcasm

RISE OF THE DUTCH REPUBLIC, 1578 by Motley[#30][jm30v10.txt]4830

Difficult for one friend to advise another in three matters Establish not freedom for Calvinism, but freedom for conscience Taxes upon income and upon consumption Toleration thought the deadliest heresy of all

RISE OF THE DUTCH REPUBLIC, 1578 by Motley[#31][jm31v10.txt]4831

Are apt to discharge such obligations--(by) ingratitude Like a man holding a wolf by the ears Local self-government which is the life-blood of liberty No man ever understood the art of bribery more thoroughly Not so successful as he was picturesque Plundering the country which they came to protect Presumption in entitling themselves Christian Protect the common tranquillity by blood, purse, and life Republic, which lasted two centuries Throw the cat against their legs Worship God according to the dictates of his conscience

RISE OF THE DUTCH REPUBLIC, 1579-80 by Motley[#32][jm32v10.txt]4832

All the majesty which decoration could impart Amuse them with this peace negotiation Conflicting claims of prerogative and conscience It is not desirable to disturb much of that learned dust Logical and historical argument of unmerciful length Mankind were naturally inclined to calumny Men were loud in reproof, who had been silent More easily, as he had no intention of keeping the promise Not to fall asleep in the shade of a peace negotiation Nothing was so powerful as religious difference On the first day four thousand men and women were slaughtered Power grudged rather than given to the deputies The disunited provinces There is no man who does not desire to enjoy his own To hear the last solemn commonplaces Word-mongers who, could clothe one shivering thought

RISE OF THE DUTCH REPUBLIC, 1580-82 by Motley[#33][jm33v10.txt]4833

Character of brave men to act, not to expect Colonel Ysselstein, "dismissed for a homicide or two" God has given absolute power to no mortal man Hope delayed was but a cold and meagre consolation Natural to judge only by the result No authority over an army which they did not pay Unduly dejected in adversity

RISE OF THE DUTCH REPUBLIC, 1582-84 by Motley[#34][jm34v10.txt]4834

Bribed the Deity Forgiving spirit on the part of the malefactor Great error of despising their enemy Mistake to stumble a second time over the same stone Modern statesmanship, even while it practises, condemns Preferred an open enemy to a treacherous protector Reformer who becomes in his turn a bigot is doubly odious Unremitted intellectual labor in an honorable cause Usual phraseology of enthusiasts Writing letters full of injured innocence

ENTIRE 1574-84 THE DUTCH REPUBLIC, by Motley[#35][jm35v10.txt]4835

A terrible animal, indeed, is an unbridled woman A good lawyer is a bad Christian A most fatal success A common hatred united them, for a time at least Absurd affectation of candor Agreements were valid only until he should repent All the majesty which decoration could impart All Protestants were beheaded, burned, or buried alive All claimed the privilege of persecuting Always less apt to complain of irrevocable events Amuse them with this peace negotiation Are apt to discharge such obligations--(by) ingratitude Arrive at their end by fraud, when violence will not avail them As the old woman had told the Emperor Adrian Attachment to a half-drowned land and to a despised religion Barbara Blomberg, washerwoman of Ratisbon Beautiful damsel, who certainly did not lack suitors Believed in the blessed advent of peace Blessing of God upon the Devil's work Breath, time, and paper were profusely wasted and nothing gained Bribed the Deity Care neither for words nor menaces in any matter Character of brave men to act, not to expect Claimed the praise of moderation that their demands were so few Colonel Ysselstein, "dismissed for a homicide or two" Compassing a country's emancipation through a series of defeats Conflicting claims of prerogative and conscience Confused conferences, where neither party was entirely sincere Country would bear his loss with fortitude Customary oaths, to be kept with the customary conscientiousness Daily widening schism between Lutherans and Calvinists Deadliest of sins, the liberty of conscience Difficult for one friend to advise another in three matters
