Arthur Balfour online

Arthur Balfour, the former British Prime Minister and one of the founding fathers of the AFR, has a couple of books that can be read online. Actually The Foundations of Belief can be read online as well, as I linked to it on DI2.

The historians, at least the ones I have read, seem to consider that Balfour was really just a dilettanté. I found this page because I am an admirer of Balfour - if for nothing else for his elegant wit, viz: "Part of what the honourable gentleman said was tru and part of what he said was trite. Unfortunately, that which was not trite was not true.

A witticism such as that indicates to me a superior mind!
