Jonathan Swift

Jonathan Swift (c. 1667-1745)

“Whoever could make two ears of corn or two blades of grass to grow upon a spot of ground where only one grew before, would deserve better of mankind, and do more essential service to his country than the whole race of politicians put together.”

  • Gulliver’s Travels (Voyage to Brobdingnag, chapter 7) by Jonathan Swift. New York: Washington Square Press, 1970.
