Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations. 1989.

AUTHOR: William Ewart Gladstone (1809–98)
QUOTATION: Go into the length and breadth of the world, ransack the literature of all countries, find, if you can, a single voice, a single book—find, I would almost say, as much as a single newspaper article, unless the product of the day, in which the conduct of England towards Ireland is anywhere treated except with profound and bitter condemnation.
ATTRIBUTION: WILLIAM E. GLADSTONE, speech on home rule, June 7, 1886.—The Speeches of the Right Hon. W. E. Gladstone, ed. A. W. Hutton and H. J. Cohen, vol. 9, p. 127 (1902).
