    Grammar, which rules even kings ...
    Molière [Jean Baptiste Poquelin] (1622–1673)

    Who does not know that kings and rulers sprang from men who were ignorant of God, who assumed because of blind greed and intolerable presumption to make themselves masters of other men, their equals, by means of pride, violence, bad faith, murder, and almost every other kind of crime? Surely the devil drove them on.
    Pope Gregory VII (c. 1020–1085)
