Famous quotes containing the words walter bagehot, bagehot and/or walter:

    Royalty is a government in which the attention of the nation is concentrated on one person doing interesting actions. A Republic is a government in which that attention is divided between many, who are all doing uninteresting actions. Accordingly, so long as the human heart is strong and the human reason weak, Royalty will be strong because it appeals to diffused feeling, and Republics weak because they appeal to the understanding.
    Walter Bagehot (1826–1877)

    So long as war is the main business of nations, temporary despotism—despotism during the campaign—is indispensable.
    —Walter Bagehot (1826–1877)

    Whoso taketh in hand to frame any state or government ought to presuppose that all men are evil, and at occasions will show themselves so to be.
    —Sir Walter Raleigh (1552–1618)
