A Quote by Count Maurice Maeterlinck on extremism, good, moderation, people, and time

The decent moderation of today will be the least of human things tomorrow. At the time of the Spanish Inquisition, the opinion of good sense and of the good medium was certainly that people ought not to burn too large a number of heretics; extreme and unreasonable opinion obviously demanded that they should burn none at all.

Count Maurice Maeterlinck (1862 - 1949)
