3 Famous Quotes by Philip Freneau
1/2/1752 - 12/18/1832
Also Known As:
O Washington! thrice glorious name,
What due rewards can man decree--
Empires are far below thy aim,
And scepters have no charms for thee;
Virtue alone has your regards,
And she must be your great reward.

Then rush'd to meet the insulting foe;
They took the spear, but left the shield.
Quotes, by Philip Freneau , Source: To the Memory of the Brave Americans who fell at Eulaw Springs
With evil omens from the harbour sails
The ill-fated ship that worthless Arnold bears;
God of the southern winds, call up thy gales,
And whistle in rude fury round his ears.
