Daily Dose

From Literary Studies, Volume One, by Walter Bagehot


"In fact, what we opprobriously call stupidity, though not an enlivening quality in common society, is nature's favourite resource for preserving steadiness of conduct and consistency of opinion."

From Letter III, On the New Constitution of France, and the Aptitude of the French Character for National Freedom, Paris, 20th January, 1852
