Walter Bagehot Monarchy Quotes

Of all the memorable phrases that have been minted and mobilised to describe modern British royalty, constitutional monarchy is virtually the only one which seemes to have neither been anticipated nor invented by Walter Bagehot.

We must not let in daylight upon magic.
