Columbus Day Quotes
"Every ship that comes to America got its chart from Columbus."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time."
"Columbus found a world, and had no chart,
Save one that faith deciphered in the skies."
"So Columbus said, somebody show me the sunset and somebody did and he set sail for it,
And he discovered America and they put him in jail for it,
And the fetters gave him welts,
And they named America after somebody else."
"Columbus went around the world in 1492. That isn't a lot of strokes when you consider the course."
"I am a most noteworthy sinner, but I have cried out to the Lord for grace and mercy, and they have covered me completely. I have found the sweetest consolation since I made it my whole purpose to enjoy His marvellous Presence."
