Lord Rosebery
Quotations


How marvellous it all is! Built not by saints and angels, but the work of menís hands; cemented with menís honest blood and with a world of tears, welded by the best brains of centuries past; not without the taint and reproach incidental to all human work, but constructed on the whole with pure and splendid purpose. Human, and yet not wholly human -- for the most heedless and the most cynical must see the finger of the Divine.

Few speeches which have produced an electrical effect on an audience can bear the colourless photography of a printed record.
