On Virtue & the Republic

TARNISH Grey Wool Knitted Sweater Vest Size M Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall, when the wise are banished from the public councils, because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded, because they flatter the people, in order to betray them. -- Edwin Meese III

On pessimism and difficulty

When you encounter difficulties, you need to be optimistic. The pessimists tend to die. --Zhou Youguang
