William Bradford
Thus out of small beginnings greater things have been produced by His hand that made all things of nothing, and gives being to all things that are; and, as one small candle may light a thousand, so the light here kindled hath shone unto many, yea in some sort to our whole nation.
Bradford quotes
So they committed themselves to the will of God and resolved to proceed.
Bradford

Bradford William quotes
Being thus arrived in a good harbor, and brought safe to land, they fell upon their knees and blessed the God of Heaven who had brought them over the vast and furious ocean, and delivered them from all the perils and miseries thereof, again to set their feet on the firm and stable earth, their proper element.
Bradford William
But it pleased God to visit us then with death daily, and with so general a disease that the living were scarce able to bury the dead.
William Bradford quotes
They knew they were pilgrims.
William Bradford
The loss of...honest and industrious men's lives cannot be valued at any price.
Bradford William quotes
Cold comfort to fill their hungry bellies.
Bradford
Our fathers were Englishmen which came over this great ocean, and were ready to perish in this wilderness.
