A Quote by Joseph de Maistre on desires, discontent, love, people, and power

Man is insatiable for power; he is infantile in his desires and, always discontented with what he has, loves only what he has not. People complain of the despotism of princes; they ought to complain of the despotism of man.

Joseph de Maistre (1753 - 1821)
