Famous quotes containing the words walter bagehot, bagehot and/or walter:

    The apparent rulers of the English nation are like the imposing personages of a splendid procession: it is by them the mob are influenced; it is they whom the spectators cheer. The real rulers are secreted in second-rate carriages; no one cares for them or asks after them, but they are obeyed implicitly and unconsciously by reason of the splendour of those who eclipsed and preceded them.
    Walter Bagehot (1826–1877)

    What impresses men is not mind, but the result of mind.
    —Walter Bagehot (1826–1877)

    “Mother” has always been a generic term synonymous with love, devotion, and sacrifice. There’s always been something mystical and reverent about them. They’re the Walter Cronkites of the human race . . . infallible, virtuous, without flaws and conceived without original sin, with no room for ambivalence.
    Erma Bombeck (20th century)
