    Magnanimity in politics is not seldom the truest wisdom; and a great empire and little minds go ill together.
    Edmund Burke (1729–1797)

    We must soften into a credulity below the milkiness of infancy to think all men virtuous. We must be tainted with a malignity truly diabolical, to believe all the world to be equally wicked and corrupt.
