    Consider what you have in the smallest chosen library. A company of the wisest and wittiest men that could be picked out of all civil countries in a thousand years have set in best order the results of their learning and wisdom.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Don’t forget your great guns, which are the most respectable arguments of the rights of kings.
    Frederick The Great (1712–1786)

    It is certainly safe, in view of the movement to the right of intellectuals and political thinkers, to pronounce the brain death of socialism.
    Norman Tebbit (b. 1931)
