Democracy means simply the bludgeoning of the people by the people for the people.
She wore far too much rouge last night and not quite enough clothes. That is always a sign of despair in a woman.
There are three kinds of despots. There is the despot who tyrannizes over the body. There is the despot who tyrannizes over the soul. There is the despot who tyrannizes over the soul and body alike. The first is called the Prince. The second is called the Pope. The third is called the People.
Despotism is unjust to everybody, including the despot, who was probably made for better things.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Man is the only creature who refuses to be what he is.
There are three wants which never can be satisfied: that of the rich, who wants something more; that of the sick, who wants something different; and that of the traveler, who says, Anywhere but here.
The idiot who praises, with enthusiastic tone, All centuries but this, and every country but his own.
Change occurs in direct proportion to dissatisfaction, but dissatisfaction never changes.
If there is dissatisfaction with the status quo, good. If there is ferment, so much the better. If there is restlessness, I am pleased. Then let there be ideas, and hard thought, and hard work. If man feels small, let man make himself bigger.
