A Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley on freedom, genius, men, obedience, power, slavery, truth, and virtue

Power, like a desolating pestilence, Pollutes whate'er it touches; and obedience, Bane of all genius, virtue, freedom, truth, Makes slaves of men, and of the human frame A mechanized automaton.

Percy Shelley (1792 - 1822)
