No real English gentleman, in ...

No real English gentleman, in his secret soul, was ever sorry for the death of a political economist.

The best history is but like the art of Rembrandt it casts a vivid light on certain selected causes, on those which were best and greatest it leaves all the rest in shadow and unseen.

Dullness in matters of governm...

Dullness in matters of government is a good sign, and not a bad one - in particular, dullness in parliamentary government is a test of its excellence, an indication of its success.

Money is economic power....

Money is economic power.

Life is not a set campaign, bu...

Life is not a set campaign, but an irregular work, and the main forces in it are not overt resolutions, but latent and half-involuntary promptings.

Walter Bagehot 155 quotes

We see but one aspect of our n...

We see but one aspect of our neighbor, as we see but one side of the moon; in either case there is also a dark half, which is unknown to us. We all come down to dinner, but each has a room to himself.

Walter Bagehot 155 quotes

An element of exaggeration cli...

An element of exaggeration clings to the popular judgment: great vices are made greater, great virtues greater also; interesting incidents are made more interesting, softer legends more soft.

Walter Bagehot 155 quotes

The habit of common and contin...

The habit of common and continuous speech is a symptom of mental deficiency. It proceeds from not knowing what is going on in other people's minds.

You may talk of the tyranny of Nero and Tiberius; but the real tyranny is the tyranny of your next-door neighbor.

Walter Bagehot 155 quotes

Our law very often reminds one...

Our law very often reminds one of those outskirts of cities where you cannot for a long time tell how the streets come to wind about in so capricious and serpent-like a manner. At last it strikes you that they grew up, house by house, on the devious tracks of the old green lanes; and if you follow on to the existing fields, you may often find the change half complete.

Walter Bagehot 155 quotes

The best security for people's...

The best security for people's doing their duty is that they should not know anything else to do.

Walter Bagehot 155 quotes

There seems to be an unalterab...

There seems to be an unalterable contradiction between the human mind and its employments. How can a soul be a merchant? What relation to an immortal being have the price of linseed, the brokerage on hemp? Can an undying creature debit petty expenses and charge for carriage paid? The soul ties its shoes; the mind washes its hands in a basin. All is incongruous.

Walter Bagehot 155 quotes

Royalty is a government in which the attention of the nation is concentrated on one person doing interesting actions.

So long as war is the main business of nations, temporary despotism - despotism during the campaign - is indispensable.

Walter Bagehot 155 quotes

The Sovereign has, under a con...

The Sovereign has, under a constitutional monarchy such as ours, three rights - the right to be consulted, the right to encourage, the right to warn. And a king of great sense and sagacity would want no others.

Walter Bagehot 155 quotes

The best reason why Monarchy i...

The best reason why Monarchy is a strong government is, that it is an intelligible government. The mass of mankind understand it, and they hardly anywhere in the world understand any other.

It has been said that England invented the phrase, 'Her Majesty's Opposition'.

But of all nations in the world the English are perhaps the least a nation of pure philosophers.

Walter Bagehot 155 quotes

Women--one half the human race...

Women--one half the human race at least--care fifty times more for a marriage than a ministry.

Walter Bagehot 155 quotes

No man has come so near our definition of a constitutional statesman - the powers of a first-rate man and the creed of a second-rate man.
