Famous Quote from Thomas Babington Macaulay,

"There is surely no contradiction in saying
that a certain section of the community may be quite competent
to protect the persons and property of the rest,
yet quite unfit to direct our opinions,
or to superintend our private habits."


Thomas Babington Macaulay (more quotes by Thomas Babington Macaulay or books by/about Thomas Babington Macaulay)

(1800-1859) [Lord Macaulay] 1st Baron Macaulay, British historian
