Quote of the Day

The English poet John Dryden, from the Dedication to Examen Poeticum, 1693:

No Government has ever been, or ever can be, wherein time-servers and blockheads will not be uppermost. The persons are only changed, but the same jugglings in State, the same hypocrisy in religion, the same self-interest and mismanagement, will remain forever. Blood and money will be lavished in all ages, only for the preferment of new faces, with old consciences.
