Quotes of George Canning

Премьер-министр Великобритании в 1827, министр иностранных дел в 1807-09

  • ⋅Indecision and delays are the parents of failure. /George Canning
  • ⋅Give me the avowed, the erect, the manly foe, bold I can meet, perhaps may turn his blow! But of all plagues, good Heavens, thy wrath can send, save, save, oh save me from the candid friend! /George Canning
  • ⋅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. /George Canning
  • ⋅A steady patriot of the world alone, The friend of every country but his own. /George Canning

    Rough is the road, your wheel is out of order;
    Bleak blows the blast--your hat has got a hole in it.
    So have your breeches. /George Canning

    Is offering too little and asking too much.
    The French are with equal advantage content--
    So we clap on Dutch bottoms just 20 per cent. /George Canning
  • ⋅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. /George Canning

    the Old. /George Canning
  • ⋅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. /George Canning
  • ⋅Whene'er with haggard eyes I view
    This dungeon that I'm rotting in,
    I think of those companions true
    Who studied with me at the U-
    Niversity of Gottingen.
    - George Canning, Song--Of One Eleven Years in Prison, /George Canning
  • ⋅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! /George Canning
  • ⋅Here's to the pilot that weathered the storm. /George Canning
  • ⋅And finds with keen, discriminating sight,
    Black's not so black--nor white so very white. /George Canning

  • ⋅Active beneficence is a virtue of easier practice than forbearance after having conferred, or than thankfulness after having received a benefit. I know not, indeed, whether it be a greater and more difficult exercise of magnanimity, for the one party to act as if he had forgotten, or for the other as if he constantly remembered the obligation. /George Canning
