George Canning
I called the New World into existence to redress the balance of the Old.
Canning quotes
Give me the avowed, the erect, the manly foe,
Bold I can meet,—perhaps may turn his blow!
But of all plagues, good Heaven, thy wrath can send,
Save, save, oh save me from the candid friend!
No, here ’s to the pilot that weathered the storm!

Canning George quotes
I can prove anything by statistics except the truth.
Canning George
So down thy hill, romantic Ashbourn, glides
The Derby dilly, carrying three INSIDES.
George Canning quotes
And finds, with keen, discriminating sight,
Black ’s not so black,—nor white so very white.
George Canning
I give thee sixpence! I will see thee damned first.
Canning George quotes
Story! God bless you! I have none to tell, sir.
