George Canning

British Prime Minister in 1827, Minister of Foreign Affairs in 1807-09
And finds with keen, discriminating sight,
Black's not so black--nor white so very white.More George Canning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Give me the avowed, the erect, the manly foe;
Bold I can meet--perhaps may turn his blow;
But of all plagues, good Heaven, thy wrath can send,
Save, save, oh! save me from the candid friend.More George Canning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is nothing I know of so sublime as a fact.More George Canning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Away with the cant of "Measures not men!"--the idle supposition
that it is the harness and not the horses that draw the chariot
along. No Sir, if the comparison must be made, if the
distinction must be taken, men are everything, measures
comparatively nothing.More George Canning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If hush'd the loud whirlwind that ruffled the deep,
The sky if no longer dark tempests deform;
When our perils are past shall our gratitude sleep?
No! Here's to the pilot that weather'd the storm!More George Canning quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
