“The purpose of politics is not to satisfy the felt needs of any individual or generation; it is to preserve and enhance the social order in the public interest. It is therefore rooted in a sense of history.”

“Leadership begins in respect for the social order, and so in modesty. It pushes leaders towards a close study of their people, all the people, and their institutions.”

“The ‘we’ of politics [is located] at the level of the nation as a whole. And it insists on the common good. And the importance of public service and public duty.”
– Jesse Norman
