The feeble tremble before opinion, the foolish defy it, the wise judge it, the skillful direct it.
Jeanne-Marie Roland (1754 - 1793)

A fondness for satire indicates a mind pleased with irritating others; for myself, I never could find amusement in killing flies.
It is for the wise people who delight in humanity, praise justice, despise their flatterers, and respect the truth.
People who know how to employ themselves, always find leisure moments, while those who do nothing are forever in a hurry.
O Liberty! Liberty! how many crimes are committed in thy name!
The more I see of men, the more I admire dogs.
