Cytaty Charles Mackay

„Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one.“

—  Charles Mackay, książka Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds

Źródło: Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds (1841)

„Cannon-balls may aid the truth
But thought’s a weapon stronger;
We’ll win our battles by its aid,
Wait a little longer.“

—  Charles Mackay

"The Good Time Coming".
Voices from the Crowd, and Town Lyrics (1857)
Kontekst: There’s a good time coming, boys!
A good time coming.
We may not live to see the day,
But earth shall glisten in the ray
Of the good time coming.
Cannon-balls may aid the truth
But thought’s a weapon stronger;
We’ll win our battles by its aid,
Wait a little longer.

„There’s a good time coming, boys!
A good time coming.“

—  Charles Mackay

"The Good Time Coming".
Voices from the Crowd, and Town Lyrics (1857)
Kontekst: There’s a good time coming, boys!
A good time coming.
We may not live to see the day,
But earth shall glisten in the ray
Of the good time coming.
Cannon-balls may aid the truth
But thought’s a weapon stronger;
We’ll win our battles by its aid,
Wait a little longer.

„They may veil their eyes, but they cannot hide
The sun’s meridian glow“

—  Charles Mackay

"Eternal Justice", Stanza 4
Legends of the Isles and Other Poems (1851)
Kontekst: They may veil their eyes, but they cannot hide
The sun’s meridian glow;
The heel of a priest may tread thee down,
And a tyrant work thee woe:
But never a truth has been destroyed;
They may curse it, and call it crime;
Pervert and betray, or slander and slay
Its teachers for a time.
But the sunshine aye shall light the sky,
As round and round we run;
And the truth shall ever come uppermost,
And justice shall be done.

„But the sunshine aye shall light the sky,
As round and round we run;
And the truth shall ever come uppermost,
And justice shall be done.“

„During seasons of great pestilence, men have often believed the prophecies of crazed fanatics, that the end of the world was come.“
