Citações Henry Brougham

„O advogado é um homem que salva os vossos bens dos inimigos, e os guarda para si.“

—  Henry Brougham

„A educação faz umas pessoas fáceis de dirigir, mas difíceis de guiar; fáceis de governar mas impossíveis de escravizar.“

—  Henry Brougham
Education makes a people easy to lead, but difficult to drive; easy to govern but impossible to enslave. Discurso para a Câmara dos Comuns (29 de janeiro de 1828).

„Death was now armed with a new terror.“

—  Henry Brougham, 1st Baron Brougham and Vaux
Reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919). Brougham delivered a very warm panegyric upon the ex-Chancellor, and expressed a hope that he would make a good end, although to an expiring Chancellor death was now armed with a new terror. Thomas Campbell, Lives of the Chancellors, vol. vii. p. 163. Lord St. Leonards attributes this phrase to Sir Charles Wetherell, who used it on the occasion referred to by Lord Campbell. It likely originates with the practice of Edmund Curll, who issued miserable catch-penny lives of every eminent person immediately after that person's decease. John Arbuthnot wittily styled him "one of the new terrors of death", Carruthers, Life of Pope (second edition), p. 149.
