OBQD #7 (one of my favorites)

From "Chapter V: Growth of Social and Intellectual Autonomy" in Charles A. Beard and Mary R. Beard's A Basic History of the United States (1944)

Years marked by wars, religious controversies and persecutions, political disputes, and royal despotism lay behind the decision to leave Europe and migrate to the English colonies. But there was something in the spirit of those who made the break-- a force of character not simply determined by economic, political, or religious conditions-- that made them different from their neighbors who remained in the turmoil and poverty of the Old World.
