„To be public-spirited and belong to no party,
to move without being bound to any given course,
to take things as they come,“

— Anthony de Mello, Context: "What kind of a person does Enlightenment produce?" Said the Master: "To be public-spirited and belong to no party, to move without being bound to any given course, to take things as they come, have no remorse for the past, no anxiety for the future, to move when pushed, to come when dragged, to be like a mighty gale, like a feather in the wind, like weeds floating on a river, like a mill-stone meekly grinding, to love all creation equally as heaven and earth are equal to all — such is the product of Enlightenment." On hearing these words one of the younger disciples cried, "This sort of teaching is not for the living but for the dead," and walked away, never to return. Rejection

„There is no such thing as public money; there is only taxpayers’ money.“

— Margaret Thatcher British stateswoman and politician 1925 - 2013
Context: Let us never forget this fundamental truth: the State has no source of money other than money which people earn themselves. If the State wishes to spend more it can do so only by borrowing your savings or by taxing you more. It is no good thinking that someone else will pay – that ‘someone else’ is you. There is no such thing as public money; there is only taxpayers’ money. Speech to Conservative Party Conference (14 October 1983) http://www.margaretthatcher.org/document/105454
