    Quotes by Lord Acton

    • It is bad to be oppressed by a minority, but it is worse to be oppressed by a majority. For there is a reserve of latent power in the masses which, if it is called into play, the minority can seldom resist. But from the absolute will of an entire people there is no appeal, no redemption, no refuge but treason.
    • Learn as much by writing as by reading.
    • The man who prefers his country before any other duty shows the same spirit as the man who surrenders every right to the state. They both deny that right is superior to authority.
    • The most certain test by which we judge whether a country is really free is the amount of security enjoyed by minorities.
    • Liberty is not a means to a higher political end. It is itself the highest political end.
      Lecture, February 26, 1877
