"A bureaucrat is the most despicable of men, though he is needed as vultures are needed, but one hardly admires vultures whom bureaucrats so strangely resemble. I have yet to meet a bureaucrat who was not petty, dull, almost witless, crafty or stupid, an oppressor or a thief, a holder of little authority in which he delights, as a boy delights in possessing a vicious dog. Who can trust such creatures?"

Marcus Tullius Cicero
(106-43 B.C.) Roman Statesman, Philosopher and Orator
A Pillar of Iron, a novel based on the life of Cicero by Taylor Caldwell (1965), p. 451
