Famous quotes containing the word macaulay:

    Nothing is so galling to a people not broken in from the birth as a paternal, or in other words a meddling government, a government which tells them what to read and say and eat and drink and wear.
    —Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800–1859)

    The object of oratory alone is not truth, but persuasion.
    —Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800–1859)

    As to the family, I have never understood how that fits in with the other ideals—or, indeed, why it should be an ideal at all. A group of closely related persons living under one roof; it is a convenience, often a necessity, sometimes a pleasure, sometimes the reverse; but who first exalted it as admirable, an almost religious ideal?
    —Rose Macaulay (1881–1958)
