Quote from Sir William Berkeley,

"I thank God, we have not free schools nor printing;
and I hope we shall not have these hundred years.
For learning has brought disobedience,
and heresy and sects into the world;
and printing has divulged them
and libels against the government.
God keep us from both!"


Sir William Berkeley (more quotes by Sir William Berkeley or books by/about Sir William Berkeley)

(1606-1677) Royal Governor of Virginia
