No–through th’extended globe his feelings run
As broad and general as th’unbounded sun!
No narrow bigot he;–his reason’d view
Thy interests, England, ranks with thine, Peru!
France at our doors, he sees no danger nigh,
But heaves for Turkey’s woes the impartial sigh;
A steady patriot of the world alone,
The friend of every country–but his own.
George Canning, “New Morality”
