... it is impossible for us, with our limited means, to attempt to educate the body of the people. We must at present do our best to form a class who may be interpreters between us and the millions whom we govern.More Thomas Macaulay quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The doctrine which, from the very first origin of religious dissensions, has been held by bigots of all sects, when condensed into a few words and stripped of rhetorical disguise, is simply this: I am in the right, and you are in the wrong. When you are the stronger, you ought to tolerate me; for it is your duty to tolerate truth. But when I am the stronger I shall persecute you; for it is my duty to persecute error.More Thomas Macaulay quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Sense can support herself handsomely in most countries on some eighteen pence a day; but for fantasy, planets and solar systems, will not suffice.More Thomas Macaulay quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In every age the vilest specimens of human nature are to be found among demagogues.More Thomas Macaulay quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
History, is made up of the bad actions of extraordinary men and woman. All the most noted destroyers and deceivers of our species, all the founders of arbitrary governments and false religions have been extraordinary people; and nine tenths of the calamities that have befallen the human race had no other origin than the union of high intelligence with low desires.More Thomas Macaulay quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
