Amelia E. Barr Quote

Politicians... turn patriotism into shopkeeping and their own interest — men who care far more for who governs us than for how we are governed.. And what will be the end of such ways? I will tell you. We shall have a Democracy that will be the reign of those who know the least and talk the loudest.


The Maid of Maiden Lane (1900)
