The repository contains four quotes from Lord Acton.
Liberty is not a means to a higher political end. It is itself the highest political end.
It is easier to find people fit to govern themselves than people to govern others. Every man is the best, the most responsible, judge of his own advantage.
The danger is not that a particular class is unfit to govern. Every class is unfit to govern.
Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
