Some Gladstone Quotes...

"Good laws make it easier to do right and harder to do wrong."

"Selfishness is the greatest curse of the human race."

"No man ever became great or good except through many and great mistakes."

"Liberalism is trust of the people tempered by prudence. Conservatism is distrust of the people tempered by fear."

"Men are apt to mistake the strength of their feeling for the strength of their argument. The heated mind resents the chill touch and relentless scrutiny of logic."
