Famous quotes containing the words democracy and/or workplace:

    In Italy, for thirty years, under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed. But they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, and they had five hundred years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.
    Graham Greene (1904–1991)

    Anne Roiphe (20th century)
