Burke Quote 1

With the French Revolution, “we have seen an infancy…growing by moments into a strength to heap mountains upon mountains, and to wage war with heaven itself” (149).

Also: “The effect of liberty to individuals is that they may do what they please: we ought to see what it will please them to do, before we risk congratulations” (149).
