More Great Quotes

The instinct of nearly all societies
is to lock up
Anybody who is truly free.
First, society begins
by trying to beat you up.
If this fails,
they try to poison you.
If this fails too,
they finish
by loading honors on your head.
--Jean Cocteau (1889-1963)
It is better to deserve honors
and not have them
than to have them
and not deserve them.
--Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens)
Dignity does not consist
in possessing honors,
but in deserving them.
