Famous quotes containing the words john and/or commons:

    For beauties from worth arise
    Are like the grace of deities,
    —Sir John Suckling (1609–1642)

    I am really sorry to see my countrymen trouble themselves about politics. If men were wise, the most arbitrary princes could not hurt them. If they are not wise, the freest government is compelled to be a tyranny. Princes appear to me to be fools. Houses of Commons & Houses of Lords appear to me to be fools; they seem to me to be something else besides human life.
    William Blake (1757–1827)
