flies of a summer

En The Conservative Mind (1953), Russell Kirk cita este párrafo de Edmund Burke, con esas moscas de un verano en las que no reparé cuando leí las Reflections: “By this unprincipled facility of changing the state as often, and as much, and in as many ways, as there are floating fancies or fashions, the whole chain and continuity of the commonwealth would be broken. No one generation could link with another (with the other, en el texto de Burke que tengo a la vista). Men would become little better than the flies of a summer”.
