Public instruction should be the first object of government.
Quote by Napoleon Bonaparte
Public morals are natural complements of all laws: they are by themselves an entire code.
When firmness is sufficient, rashness is unnecessary.
One must change one's tactics every ten years if one wishes to maintain one's superiority.
Ability is of little account without opportunity.
Religion is what keeps the poor man from murdering the rich
A leader is a dealer in hope.
All religions have been made by men.
Never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence.
Religion is excellent stuff for keeping common people quiet
If you wish to be a success in the world, promise everything, deliver nothing.
History is a set of lies agreed upon.
Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich.
When small men attempt great enterprises, they always end by reducing them to the level...
Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.
Imagination governs the world.
The infectiousness of crime is like that of the plague.
Death is nothing, but to live defeated and inglorious is to die daily.
The surest way to remain poor is to be an honest man.
A throne is only a bench covered with velvet.
Forethought we may have, undoubtedly, but not foresight.
