    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

In our rush to accomplish great deeds quickly, we trampled on sound principles of restraint and endangered the rights of individuals.
    Gerald R. Ford (b. 1913)

    Man is imperfect. The reality he creates is always endangered by man.
    Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921–1990)
