1ST EARL OF CHATHAM, WILLIAM PITT
English statesman and orator
(1708 - 1778)

An eagerness and zeal for dispute on every subject, and with every one, shows great self-sufficiency, that never-failing sign of great self-ignorance.
      - [Conceit]

Bowing, ceremonious, formal compliments, stiff civilities, will never be politeness; that must be easy, natural, unstudied; and what will give this but a mind benevolent and attentive to exert that amiable disposition in trifles to all you converse and live with?
      - [Politeness]

I would have inscribed on the curtains of your bed, and the walls of your chamber: "If you do not rise early, you can make progress in nothing."
      - [Early Rising]

If I were an American, as I am an Englishman, while a foreign troop was landed in my country, I never would lay down my arms--never, never, never.
      - [Patriotism]

Moderation, which consists in an indifference about little things, and in a prudent and well-proportioned zeal about things of importance, can proceed from nothing but true knowledge, which has its foundation in self-acquaintance.
      - [Moderation]

The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the forces of the crown. It may be frail, its roof may shake, the winds may blow through it, the storm may enter, the rain may enter; but the king of England cannot enter.
      - [Law]

Trade increases the wealth and glory of a country; but its real strength and stamina are to be looked for among the cultivators of the land.
      - [Agriculture]

Unlimited power corrupts the possessor; and this I know, that, where law ends, there tyranny begins.
      - [Tyranny]

Where law ends, there tyranny begins.
      - [Law]
