A Quote by Rabindranath Tagore on language, sovereign, passport, border, and travellers

Languages are jealous sovereigns, and passports are rarely allowed for travellers to cross their strictly guarded borders.

Rabindranath Tagore (1861 - 1941)

A Quote by E. C. Riegel on democracy, money, power, politics, government, tyranny, freedom, liberty, sovereign, and political power

Money power cannot be separated from democratic power without miscarriage and ensuing frustration - political and economic. Democracy implies the sovereignty of man; and, since man cannot be sovereign without the money power, there can not be democracy under the political money system.

E. C. Riegel
