Jonathan Swift

Jonathan Swift (c. 1667-1745)

“How low an opinion I had of human wisdom and integrity, when I was truly informed of the springs and motives of great enterprises and revolutions in the world, and of the contemptible accidents to which they owed their success.”

  • Gulliver’s Travels (Voyage to Laputa, chapter 8) by Jonathan Swift. New York: Washington Square Press, 1970.
