Towards Better Democracy

Good words, well written, better the world. Good literature betters the world immeasurably.

Saadi Shiraz: Manner Of Kings


f the king eats one apple from the garden of a subject
His slaves will pull him up the tree from the roots.
For five eggs which the sultan allows to be taken by force
The people belonging to his army will put a thousand fowls on the spit.
A tyrant does not remain in the world
But the curse on him abides for ever

Saadi Shiraz
