Edmund Burke Quote: “Flattery is no more than what raises in a man’s mind an idea of a preference which he has not.”
Edmund Burke Quote: “I do ride contend against the advantages of distrust. In the world we live in, it is but too necessary. Some of old called it the very sinews of discretion.”
Edmund Burke Quote: “My hold of the colonies is in the close affection which grows from common names, from kindred blood, from similar privileges, and equal protection. These are ties which, though light as air, are as strong as links of iron.”
Edmund Burke Quote: “Of this stamp is the cant of, Not men, but measures.”

Edmund Burke Quote: “Men are as much blinded by the extremes of misery as by the extremes of prosperity.”

Without the warm cloak of custom, tradition, experience, history, religion, and social hierarchy – all of which radical man would rip off – man is shivering and naked.
