Henry Peter Brougham

1778 - 1868

A Quote by Henry Peter, Lord Brougham on betrayal, errors, good, guilt, men, metaphor, and mind

In my mind, he was guilty of no error - he was chargeable with no exaggeration - he was betrayed by his fancy into no metaphor, who once said that all we see about us, Kings, Lords, and Commons, the whole machinery of the State, all the apparatus of the system, and its varied workings, end in simply bringing twelve good men into a box.

A Quote by Henry Peter, Lord Brougham on age, military, soldiers, and trust

Let the soldier be abroad if he will, he can do nothing in this age. There is another personage,- a personage less imposing in the eyes of some, perhaps insignificant. The schoolmaster is abroad, and I trust to him, armed with his primer, against the soldier in full military array.
