Edmund Burke – Compromise and barter

Share this quote:
Edmund BurkeAll government, indeed every human benefit and enjoyment, every virtue and every prudent act, is founded on compromise and barter. We balance inconveniences; we give and take; we remit some rights, that we may enjoy others; and we choose rather to be happy citizens than subtle disputants.

Edmund Burke   (1729-1797)
