A Quote by Thomas Babington, Lord Macaulay on ethics, love, poetry, and wives

From the poetry of Lord Byron they drew a system of ethics compounded of misanthropy and voluptuousness,-a system in which the two great commandments were to hate your neighbour and to love your neighbour's wife.

Lord Macaulay Thomas Babington (1800 - 1859)
