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

Yew-Trees, l. 9 (1803).
Kontext: 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.

„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.“

—  Gillian Anderson American-British film, television and theatre actress, activist and writer 1968

„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

Letter from Jamaica (Summer 1815)
Kontext: 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.

„We--by whom I mean anyone over sixty--commit two offenses just bu existing. One is Lack of Velocity. We drive too slowly, walk to slowly, talk too slowly. The world will do business with dictators, perverts, and drugs barons of all stripes, but being slowed down it cannot abide.“
