"While the history books are filled with tales of obsessive visionary geniuses who remade the world in their images with sheer, almost irrational force, I've found that history is also made by individuals who fought their egos at every turn, who eschewed the spotlight, and who put their higher goals above their desire for recognition."

"Disappointing. Thin, weak reading."
Some writers have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins.

The one encourages intercourse, the other creates distinctions. The first is a patron, the last a punisher.
