A Quote by Sir Charles Percy Snow on decisions, fate, life, power, and trust

No one is fit to be trusted with power. . . . No one. . . . Any man who has lived at all knows the follies and wickedness he's capable of. If he does not know it, he is not fit to govern others. And if he does know it, he knows also that neither he nor any man ought to be allowed to decide a single human fate.

Sir Charles Percy Snow (1905 - 1980)
