    Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt (1767–1835)

    A multitude of little superfluous precautions engender here a population of deputies and sub-officials, each of whom acquits himself with an air of importance and a rigorous precision, which seemed to say, though everything is done with much silence, “Make way, I am one of the members of the grand machine of state.”
    Marquis De Custine (1790–1857)

    Fathers should be neither seen nor heard. That is the only proper basis for family life.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    I was court-martialled in my absence, and sentenced to death in my absence, so I said they could shoot me in my absence.
    Brendan Behan (1923–1964)
