Citáty Thomas Macaulay

Citát „Škola produkuje veľa ľudí, ktorí vedia čítať, ale nevedia rozlišovať, čo za prečítanie stojí a čo nie.“

„To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his gods“

—  Thomas Babington Macaulay, 1st Baron Macaulay
Context: Then out spake brave Horatius, The Captain of the Gate: "To every man upon this earth Death cometh soon or late. And how can man die better Than facing fearful odds, For the ashes of his fathers, And the temples of his gods, And for the tender mother Who dandled him to rest, And for the wife who nurses His baby at her breast, And for the holy maidens Who feed the eternal flame, To save them from false Sextus That wrought the deed of shame?" Horatius, st. 26 & 27; this quote is often truncated to read:

„With weeping and with laughter
Still is the story told,
How well Horatius kept the bridge
In the brave days of old.“

—  Thomas Babington Macaulay, 1st Baron Macaulay
Context: When the goodman mends his armor, And trims his helmet's plume; When the goodwife's shuttle merrily Goes flashing through the loom; With weeping and with laughter Still is the story told, How well Horatius kept the bridge In the brave days of old. Horatius, st. 70

„Then none was for a party,
Then all were for the state;
Then the rich man helped the poor,
And the poor man loved the great;
Then lands were fairly portioned,
Then spoils were fairly sold;
The Romans were like brothers
In the brave days of old“

—  Thomas Babington Macaulay, 1st Baron Macaulay
Context: p>Then none was for a party, Then all were for the state; Then the rich man helped the poor, And the poor man loved the great; Then lands were fairly portioned, Then spoils were fairly sold; The Romans were like brothers In the brave days of old.Now Roman is to Roman More hateful than a foe; And the Tribunes beard the high and the fathers grind the low; As we wax hot in faction, In battle we wax cold; And men fight not as they fought In the brave days of old.</p Horatius, st. 32 & 33
