"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
"Little else is requisite to carry a state to the highest degree of opulence from the lowest barbarism but peace, easy taxes, and a tolerable administration of justice: all the rest being brought about by the natural course of things."
