WILLIAM PITT ("THE YOUNGER")
English statesman, orator and prime minister
(1759 - 1806)

Let us hope that England, having saved herself by her energy, may save Europe by her example.
      - in his last speech made at the Lord Mayor's banquet at Guildhall
        [England]

Out of light a little profit.
  [Lat., Ex luce lucellum.]
      - his description of the Window Tax, suggested by Robert Lowe as matchbox motto due to tax
        [Light]

It is with eloquence as with a flame; it requires fuel to feed it, motion to excite it, and it brightens as it burns.
      - Paraphrase of Tacitus [Eloquence]

Prostrate the beauteous ruin lies; and all
  That shared its shelter, perish in its fall.
      - The Poetry of the Anti-Jacobian [Ruin]
