Land, in England, is valuable, because we have highly-paid

- Joseph Hume

At the present moment the people of England are only three-quarters fed,
and the result of this improvement in the export of
our manufactures would be,
that they would be entirely fed.

I see no reason for giving the capital employed in
agriculture greater protection than the capital vested
in other branches of trade,
manufacture, or commerce.
- Joseph Hume

We ought, therefore, to lessen the price of food to our manufacturers,
and place them more on a level with the manufacturers who have cheaper food,
and also much lighter taxation.
- Joseph Hume

Our course, then, is clear; if we desire to put an end to pauperism,
or to lessen it, we should import everything we can use or sell,
in order that we may employ our unemployed hands,
in making the goods by which we pay for these imports.
- Joseph Hume

Worse there cannot be; a better, I believe,
there may be, by giving energy to the capital and skill
of the country to produce exports,
by increasing which, alone, can we flatter ourselves
with the prospect of finding employment for that part
of our population now unemployed.
- Joseph Hume

ere long, render the land in Great Britain of as little
value as it is in other countries.
- Joseph Hume

With an open trade in corn and a fixed duty we should
have every man in the country fully fed and happy,
instead of our present situation in which so much distress exists -
distress of our own producing.

What farmers require is, that the prices should be moderate,
and the markets steady; and for this reason I did,
in 1826, 1827, and 1828, take the course which I would
now recommend to the House.
- Joseph Hume

In Great Britain the price of food is at a higher level
than in any other country,

disadvantage in proportion to the higher rate of his food.

The advantage to Great Britain of a regular free trade in corn would,
therefore, be more by raising the rest of the world
to our standard and price,
than by lowering the prices here to the standard of the Continent.
- Joseph Hume

There is abundant proof that the opening of our ports
always tends to raise the price of foreign corn to
the price in the English market,
and not to sink the price of British corn to the price
in the continental market.
- Joseph Hume

Real love is never a selfish emotion.
If you want something from someone -
especially if that something is sex -
what you are feeling is not true love.
True love is about wanting happiness for the person you love -
and not about seeking happiness for yourself.
Fortunately, in most cases our own loving presence
is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
