NUMBER:533
AUTHOR:Henry John Temple, 3d Viscount Palmerston (1784–1865)
QUOTATION:I hold that the real policy of England—apart from questions which involve her own particular interests—is to be the champion of justice and right; pursuing that course with moderation and prudence, not becoming the Quixote of the world, but giving the weight of her moral sanction and support wherever she thinks that justice is, and wherever she thinks that wrong has been done.
ATTRIBUTION:LORD PALMERSTON, remarks in the House of Commons defending his foreign policy, March 1, 1848.—Hansard’s Parliamentary Debates, 3d series, vol. 97, col. 122.
SUBJECTS:England
