In a democracy, the majority of the citizens is capable of exercising the most cruel oppressions upon the minority
~ Edmund Burke (January 12, 1729 - July 09, 1797)
I can't make head or tail of Life. Love is a fine thing, Art is a fine thing, Nature is a fine thing; but the average human mind and spirit are confusing beyond measure. Sometimes I think that all our learning is the little learning of the maxim. To laugh at a Roman awe-stricken in a sacred grove is to laugh at something today.
~ Wallace Stevens (October 02, 1879 - August 02, 1955)
