Quote from John Dryden,

"We find few historians who have been
diligent enough in their search for truth;
it is their common method to take on trust
what they help distribute to the public;
by which means a falsehood once received
from a famed writer becomes traditional to posterity."


John Dryden (more quotes by John Dryden or books by/about John Dryden)

(1631-1700) English Poet
