Government must be a transparent garment which tightly clings to the peoples body.
The death clock is ticking slowly in our breast, and each drop of blood measures its time, and our life is a lingering fever.
The strides of humanity are slow, they can only be counted in centuries.
The breath of an aristocrat is the death rattle of freedom.
The sin is in our thoughts.
People like us are unhappy in this world and in the next, I guess if we made it to heaven, wed have to help make it thunder.

Revolution is like the daughters of Pelias: it cuts humanity to pieces in order to rejuvenate it.

The revolution must end and the republic must begin. In our constitution, right must take the place of duty, welfare that of virtue, and self-defense that of punishment. Everyone must be able to prevail and to live according to ones own nature.
The state is therefore everyone; the rules within the state are laws which safeguard the welfare of all and which must originate from the welfare of all.
