"Liberalism can never be a spent force. Tomorrow or ever. As long as human kind retain their civilisation; as long as birds sing in unclouded skies, so long will endure the power of the compassionate spirit.

"But a Liberal society will be built only with the bricks of effort and the mortar of persistence. And it is to you that the challenge is made. It is upon you that responsibility rests. It is with you that hope resides."

Russell Johnston 1932-2008, MP for Inverness 1964-1983 and Inverness, Nairn and Lochaber 1983-1997
