“Many ideas grow better when transplanted into another mind than in the one where they sprung up.”
“The penalty that good men pay for not being interested in politics is to be governed by men worse than themselves.”
Johannes Abraham Christooffel Fagginger Auer
"We are but a small cog in the machinery of history but for the time being a necessary one; when we are gone another person will replace us. . . . We must learn to be satisfied in the midst of this changing world, satisfied to play our part and then be forgotten. We must serve our time."
