Balfour Quotes

Prison is a severe and terrible punishment; but for me, thanks to Arthur Balfour, this was not so. I was much cheered on my arrival by the warder at the gate, who had to take particulars about me.

This remark kept me cheerful for about a week.
— Bertrand Russell —

— Harry S. Truman
