"No one is fit to be trusted with power. ... No one. ...
           Any man who has lived at all
    knows the follies and wickedness he's capable of. ...
              And if he does know it,
      he knows also that neither he nor any man
   ought to be allowed to decide a single human fate."
-- C. P. Snow
[Charles Percy Snow, Baron Snow, CBE] (1905-1980) English novelist, physical chemist

A cosmos in himself, he does not exist for the State,
nor for that abstraction called 'society,' or the 'nation,'
which is only a collection of individuals."
