Some quotes from Edmund Burke

.
“The basis of the Christian system, humility, is the low but deep and firm foundation of all real virtue. But this, as very painful in practice and little imposing in appearance, we have totally discarded.”
.
“The characteristic essence of property, formed out of the combined principles of its acquisition and conservation, is to be unequal.”
.
“There is no qualification for government but virtue and wisdom, actual or presumptive.”
.
“It is the nature of all greatness not to be exact.”
.
“No one could make a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.”
