    Opiate. An unlocked door in the prison of Identity. It leads into the jail yard.
    Ambrose Bierce (1842–1914)

    There are very many characteristics which go into making a model civil servant. Prominent among them are probity, industry, good sense, good habits, good temper, patience, order, courtesy, tact, self-reliance, many deference to superior officers, and many consideration for inferiors.
    —Chester A. Arthur (1829–1886)

    Who does not see that I have taken a road along which I shall go, without stopping and without effort, as long as there is ink and paper in the world? I cannot keep a record of my life by my actions; fortune places them too low. I keep it by my thoughts.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
