From the Mayflower’s landing to the age of the internet, New Englanders have always had something to say. Focusing on the unique qualities of both land and people, The Quotable New Englander showcases the linguistic insight of the region’s native and adopted sons and daughters, from writers like Emily Dickinson to politicians like John F. Kennedy. Sometimes insightful, sometimes hilarious, these quotes will have readers smiling, laughing, and shaking their heads.
