George William Curtis (February 24, 1824August 31, 1892) was an American writer and public speaker.


  • I walked beside the evening sea
    And dreamed a dream that could not be;
    The waves that plunged along the shore
    Said only: "Dreamer, dream no more!"
    • Ebb and Flow.
  • While we read history we make history.
    • The Call of Freedom.
  • Every great crisis of human history is a pass of Thermopylae, and there is always a Leonidas and his three hundred to die in it, if they can not conquer.
    • The Call of Freedom.
