Quote of the Day (Thomas Babington Macaulay, on Virtue and Power)

“The highest proof of virtue is to possess boundless power without abusing it.”—English historian and Whig politician Lord Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800-1859), 1843 review of Lucy Aikin’s Life and Writings of Addison, in Critical and Historical Essays (1852)

Good luck trying to find such a person—especially these days.
