If we command our wealth, we shall be rich and free. If our wealth commands us, we are poor indeed. – Edmund Burke
Edmund Burke (12 January – 9 July 1797) was an Irish statesman born in Dublin, as well as an author, orator, political theorist, and philosopher who, after moving to London, served as a member of parliament (MP) for many years in the House of Commons with the Whig Party.
In the nineteenth century Burke was praised by both conservatives and liberals. Subsequently, in the twentieth century, he became widely regarded as the philosophical founder of modern conservatism. (Source – Wikipedia)
