Montesquieu Quotes

The deterioration of every government begins with the decay of the principles on which it was founded.

There is no greater tyranny than that which is perpetrated under the shield of the law and in the name of justice.

We wish to be happier than other people; and this is difficult, for we believe others to be happier than they are.
