QUOTATION FOR EVERY OCCASION

One of the many perks of being a history student is that in my reading and research I come across many great quotations from the past. Often these are well known quotations that I get to read in their original publication and in the original historical context. Others are obscure quotations that for one reason or another just jump out while reading.

In my reading today I found this quotation that seemed appropriate given the Liberal convention going on:

"In Canada you are reminded of the government everyday. It parades itself before you."
- Henry David Thoreua, A Yankee In Canada
