Engrave this Quote 'All Mr. Pitt's sentiments were liberal and elevated. His ruling passion was an unbounded ambition, which, when supported by great abilities and crowned with great success, make (sic) what the world calls a great man.

-Philip Dormer Stanhope, Character of Mr. Pitt; Chesterfield's Works. Appendix to vol. iv. p. 64. Tell a Friend
