"The great misfortune is that a notion obtains with those in power
that the world, or the people, require more governing than is
necessary. To govern well is a great science, but no country is ever
improved by too much governing . . . most men think when they are
elevated to position, that it requires an effort to discharge their
duties, and they leave common sense out of the question."
