The majority is never right. Never, I tell you! That's one of these lies in society that no free and intelligent man can ever help rebelling against. Who are the people that make up the biggest proportion of the population -- the intelligent ones or the fools? I think we can agree it's the fools, no matter where you go in this world, it's the fools that form the overwhelming majority.
The spirit of truth and the spirit of freedom -- they are the pillars of society.
The strongest man in the world is he who stands alone.
A community is like a ship; everyone ought to be prepared to take the helm.

You should never wear your best trousers when you go out to fight for freedom and liberty.
One should never put on one's best trousers to go out to fight for freedom.
The great secret of power is never to will to do more than you can accomplish.
