"Idealism is the noble toga that political gentlemen drape over their will to power." -- Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) Author

"Those who take the most from the table, teach contentment. Those for whom the taxes are destined, demand sacrifice. Those who eat their fill, speak to the hungry, of wonderful times to come. Those who lead the country into the abyss, call ruling difficult, for ordinary folk." -- Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956) German dramatist, stage director, and poet
