James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
Oliver Cromwell
  A man never rises so high as when he knows not whither he is going.  1
  I beseech you, dear brethren, think it possible that you may be wrong.  2
  I would have been glad to have lived under my woodside, to have kept a flock of sheep, rather than undertaken such a government as this.  3
  “Leave off your fooling and come down, sir.”  4
  Put your trust in God, and keep your powder dry.  5
  Subtlety may deceive you; integrity never will.  6
  Vote it as you please; there is a company of poor men that will spend all their blood before they see it settled so.  7
  What are all our histories but God manifesting himself, that he hath shaken, and tumbled down, and trampled upon everything that he hath not planted!  8
