Political Maxims

Only the weak grab at power.

The one who cannot rule himself aspires to rule others.

No throne was ever designed for comfort.

The only possible defence of the hereditary principle is that those who are accustomed to power may have their appetite for it blunted.

Would you build on rubble? If not why would you build on fear?

The more you hurt others the more you hurt yourself because we are all One.

Censorship silences the censor.

A wall imprisons even as it excludes.
