    A schoolmaster should have an atmosphere of awe, and walk wonderingly, as if he was amazed at being himself.
    Walter Bagehot (1826–1877)

    A bureaucracy is sure to think that its duty is to augment official power, official business, or official members, rather than to leave free the energies of mankind; it overdoes the quantity of government, as well as impairs its quality. The truth is, that a skilled bureaucracy ... is, though it boasts of an appearance of science, quite inconsistent with the true principles of the art of business.
    —Walter Bagehot (1826–1877)

    Go, Soul, the body’s guest,
    Upon a thankless arrant:
    Fear not to touch the best;
    The truth shall be thy warrant:
    Go, since I needs must die,
    And give the world the lie.
    —Sir Walter Raleigh (1552?–1618)
