Quote of the Day (Edmund Burke, on ‘The Great Error of Our Nature’)

“The great Error of our Nature is, not to know where to stop, not to be satisfied with any reasonable Acquirement; not to compound with our Condition; but to lose all we have gained by an insatiable Pursuit after more.”—Anglo-Irish statesman (and father of conservatism) Edmund Burke (1729-1797), A Vindication of Natural Society (1756)
