Edmund Burke – Those who make the noise

Share this quote:
Edmund BurkeBecause half a dozen grasshoppers under a fern make the field ring with their importunate chink, whilst thousands of great cattle, reposed beneath the shadow of the British oak, chew the cud and are silent, pray do not imagine that those who make the noise are the only inhabitants of the field.

Edmund Burke   (1729-1797)
Reflections on the Revolution in France
