„A living thing
Produced too slowly ever to decay;
Of form and aspect too magnificent
To be destroyed.“

—  William Wordsworth, Context: Of vast circumference and gloom profound, This solitary Tree! A living thing Produced too slowly ever to decay; Of form and aspect too magnificent To be destroyed. Yew-Trees, l. 9 (1803).

„I try, in my life, to follow my heart. I know what it feels like to do things that are soul-decaying. A large aspect of life in Hollywood, in a stereotypic way, I find unbelievably soul-decaying. And I choose, albeit frustratingly to other people in my life, not to expose myself too much to too much of that.“

„A state too expensive in itself, or by virtue of its dependencies, ultimately falls into decay“

—  Simón Bolívar Venezuelan military and political leader, South American libertador 1783 - 1830
Context: A state too expensive in itself, or by virtue of its dependencies, ultimately falls into decay; its free government is transformed into a tyranny; it disregards the principles which it should preserve, and finally degenerates into despotism. The distinguishing characteristic of small republics is stability: the character of large republics is mutability. Letter from Jamaica (Summer 1815)
