Quotations by Weems, M.L.


It is not then, in the glare of public, but in the shade of private life, that we are to look for the man. Private life is always real life. … It is the private virtues that lay the foundation of all human excellence.

M.L. Weems (1759-1825) American clergyman and author [Mason Locke Weems]
The Life of George Washington (1800)
