Famous quotes containing the word rulers:
“No matter what one says, you can recognize only those matters that are equal to you. Only rulers who possess extraordinary abilities will recognize and esteem properly extraordinary abilities in their subjects and servants.”
—Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (17491832)
“Of the best rulers The people only know that they exist; The next best they love and praise The next they fear; And the next they revile. When they do not command the peoples faith, Some will lose faith in them, And then they resort to oaths! But of the best when their task is accomplished, their work done, The people all remark, We have done it ourselves.”
—Lao-Tzu (6th century B.C.)
