NUMBER:5486
AUTHOR:Henry Peter, Lord Brougham (1778–1868)
QUOTATION:In my mind, he was guilty of no error, he was chargeable with no exaggeration, he was betrayed by his fancy into no metaphor, who once said that all we see about us, kings, lords, and Commons, the whole machinery of the State, all the apparatus of the system, and its varied workings, end in simply bringing twelve good men into a box.
ATTRIBUTION:Present State of the Law, Feb. 7, 1828.
