Some Quotations And Thoughts.

He Thought :

“The Public is an old woman. Let her maunder and mumble.”
(Thomas Carlyle (1795–1881).

But did not knew

“The people are the masters.”
Edmund Burke (1729–1797), Irish-born British statesman and political philosopher.)

“The voice of the people is the voice of God.”
Alcuin (735?–804), English theologian and scholar.

And

“Liberty does not consist in mere declarations of the rights of man. It consists in the translation of those declarations into definite action.”
Woodrow Wilson (1856–1925), U.S. president. Speech (July 4, 1914).

But he does not understand this so let me quote Lincoln (as he is so fond of him):

“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.”
First inaugural address (March 4, 1861)

“As President, I have no eyes but constitutional eyes, I cannot see you.”
Reply to the South Carolina commissioners.

“The ballot is stronger than the bullet.”
Speech at Bloomington, Illinois (May 19, 1856).

“You can fool some of the people all the time and all the people some of the time; but you can’t fool all the people all the time.”
Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

“Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves.”
Letter to H. L. Pierce and others (April 6, 1859).

But would he ever understand ?
