Favorite Whigs Quotes

1. "I have written on all sorts of subjects... yet I have no enemies; except indeed all the Whigs, all the Tories, and all the Christians."
Author: David Hume
2. "The right-wing Tories and the conservative Whigs fought Napoleon as the Usurper and the Enemy of the Established Order; the liberal Tories and the radical Whigs fought him as the Betrayer of the Revolution and the Enslaver of Europe; they were all agreed in fighting him, and his notion that their disagreement signified national disunion was mere wishful thinking. All dictators since his time have fallen into the same trap: themselves blind to the values of liberty, they cannot conceive that people who disagree on its meaning can nevertheless unite in upholding their freedoms against patent despotism."
Author: J. Christopher Herold
3. "Nessuna passione cova più forte in petto all'uomo, del desiderio di far pensare gli altri a modo proprio. Nulla offusca tanto il cielo della sua felicità, nulla lo riempie tanto di furore, quanto il sapere che un altro tiene a vili cose di cui egli fa gran conto. Whigs e Tories, liberali e laburisti, per che cosa lottano - se non per il loro prestigio? Non l'amore della verità, ma la sete di dominio scaglia fazione contro fazione, e fa desiderare a una parrocchia la rovina di un'altra parrocchia. Ognuno pensa a serbare la pancia per i fichi e ad asservirsi l'avversario, piuttosto che al trionfo della verità e all'esaltazione della virtù."
Author: Virginia Woolf
