Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

William Hazlitt – from The Life of Napoleon Buonaparte

I have nowhere in any thing I may have written declared myself to be a Republican; nor should I think it worth while to be a martyr and a confessor to any form or mode of government.

But what I have staked health and wealth, name and fame upon, and am ready to do so again and to the last gasp, is this, that there is a power in the people to change its government and its governors.

The source of the experience

Hazlitt, William
