Quote from Will Durant,

"Forced to choose, the poor, like the rich,
love money more than political liberty;
and the only political freedom capable of enduring
is one that is so pruned as to keep the rich
from denuding the poor by ability or subtlety
and the poor from robbing the rich by violence or votes."


Will Durant (more quotes by Will Durant or books by/about Will Durant)

(1885-1981) American psychologist, philosopher
