Famous quotes by walter bagehot:

    In early times every sort of advantage tends to become a military advantage; such is the best way, then, to keep it alive. But the Jewish advantage never did so; beginning in religion, contrary to a thousand analogies, it remained religious. For that we care for them; from that have issued endless consequences.
    Walter Bagehot (1826–1877)

    A princely marriage is the brilliant edition of a universal fact, and, as such, it rivets mankind.
