NUMBER:5485
AUTHOR:Henry Peter, Lord Brougham (1778–1868)
QUOTATION:Let the soldier be abroad if he will, he can do nothing in this age. There is another personage,—a personage less imposing in the eyes of some, perhaps insignificant. The schoolmaster is abroad, and I trust to him, armed with his primer, against the soldier in full military array.
ATTRIBUTION:Speech, Jan. 29, 1828.
