Citáty Walter Bagehot

„Důvod, proč je napsáno tak málo dobrých knih je ten, že tak málo lidí, kteří umí psát, něco ví.“

„A velkou radostí v životě je dělat to, o čem lidé říkají, že to nemůžete dokázat.“

„The soldier—that is, the great soldier—of to-day is not a romantic animal, dashing at forlorn hopes, animated by frantic sentiment, full of fancies as to a love-lady or a sovereign; but a quiet, grave man, busied in charts, exact in sums, master of the art of tactics, occupied in trivial detail; thinking, as the Duke of Wellington was said to do, most of the shoes of his soldiers; despising all manner of èclat and eloquence; perhaps, like Count Moltke, ‘silent in seven languages’.“


„Writers, like teeth, are divided into incisors and grinders.“

„We see but one aspect of our neighbor, as we see but one side of the moon; in either case there is also a dark half, which is unknown to us. We all come down to dinner, but each has a room to himself.“

„The whole history of civilization is strewn with creeds and institutions which were invaluable at first, and deadly afterwards.“
