Monday Quote: Thomas Babington Macaulay

thomas-macaulay-1-sizedTo punish a man because we infer from the nature of some doctrine which he holds, or from the conduct of other persons who hold the same doctrines with him, that he will commit a crime, is persecution, and is, in every case, foolish and wicked.

Thomas Babington Macaulay

Hallam, 1828
