Frasi John Bright

„L'Inghilterra è la madre dei Parlamenti.“

— John Bright
discorso a Birmingham, 18 gennaio 1865; citato in Giuseppe Fumagalli, Chi l'ha detto?, Hoepli, 1921, p. 333

„England is the mother of Parliaments.“

— John Bright
Context: We may be proud that England is the ancient country of Parliaments. With scarcely any intervening period, Parliaments have met constantly for 600 years, and there was something of a Parliament before the Conquest. England is the mother of Parliaments. Speech at Birmingham, (18 January 1865)

„The angel of death has been abroad throughout the land; you may almost hear the beating of his wings.“

— John Bright
Context: The angel of death has been abroad throughout the land; you may almost hear the beating of his wings. There is no one, as when the first-born were slain of old, to sprinkle with blood the lintel and the two sideposts of our doors, that he may spare and pass on; he takes his victims from the castle of the noble, the mansion of the wealthy, and the cottage of the poor and the lowly, and it is on behalf of all these classes that I make this solemn appeal. Speech https://api.parliament.uk/historic-hansard/commons/1855/feb/23/supply-ministerial-explanations to the House of Commons (23 February 1855) opposing the Crimean War.

„It is not Bradlaugh's atheism which they hate, but his unconscious Christianity.“

— John Bright
Remark to his son, quoted in G. M. Trevelyan, The Life of John Bright (London: Constable, 1913), p. 428. Charles Bradlaugh had refused to swear an oath to God that was required of an elected candidate to the House of Commons before they could take their seat.
