Gen­eral good is the plea of the scoundrel, hyp­ocrite, and flat­terer.” “Lib­er­als can­not help be­liev­ing that all hu­man be­ings se­cretly yearn to be­come as they imag­ine them­selves to be.” “I don’t con­sider my­self a pes­simist at all. I think of a pes­simist as some­one who is wait­ing for it to rain. And I feel soaked to the skin.” “As democ­racy is per­fected, the of­fice of pres­i­dent rep­re­sents, more and more closely, the in­ner soul of the peo­ple.
