Quote of the Month

January and February

“Every step and every movement of the multitude, even in what are termed enlightened ages, are made with equal blindness to the future; and nations stumble upon establishments, which are indeed the result of human action, but not the execution of any human design.”

Adam Ferguson (1723-1816) in his An Essay on the History of Civil Society (1767).  Ferguson was a philosopher and historian, a professor at the University of Edinburgh, and an important figure in the Scottish Enlightenment.
