slide31
Author: A fool, who, not content with having bored those who have lived with him, insists on tormenting the generations to come.
slide32
The tyranny of a prince in an oligarchy is not so dangerous to the public welfare as the apathy of a citizen in a democracy.
slide33
There is no nation so powerful, as the one that obeys its laws not from principals of fear or reason, but from passion.
slide34
The sublimity of administration consists in knowing the proper degree of power that should be exerted on different occasions.
slide37

The worker becomes all the poorer the more wealth he produces, the more his production increases in power and range. The worker becomes an ever cheaper commodity the more commodities he creates.
