Quote of the Week: Edmund Burke, “Reflections on the Revolution in France”

Edmund BurkeBecause half a dozen grasshoppers under a fern make the field ring with their importunate chink, whilst thousands of great cattle, reposed beneath the shadow of the British oak, chew the cud and are silent, pray do not imagine, that those who make the noise are the only inhabitants of the field; that, of course, they are many in number; or that, after all, they are other than little shriveled, meager, hopping, through loud and troublesome insects of the hour.

▪ Edmund Burke, Reflections on the Revolution in France (Penguin, 2004 [1790]) extract from page 181.
