The Quote Shelf

Medieval text with Latin script A frequent feature on this site; feel free to comment on the quote or to supply a competing quote.

Today a government is strong and powerful, deploys huge armies, millions of gendarmes and police, maintains in its hands all the moral and material powers of the nation - tomorrow, in one night, it can lose all its power, be left without a roof and shelter, lie at the feet of those whom only yesterday it could shoot down or hang publicly.
-- Petr Tkachev
