„Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown.“

—  Bob Dylan American singer-songwriter, musician, author, and artist 1941
Context: Come gather ’round people Wherever you roam And admit that the waters Around you have grown. And accept it that soon You’ll be drenched to the bone. If your time to you is worth savin’ Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone For the times they are a-changin’.

„I have grown more like Etrigan, and he… he too has grown more like Etrigan.“

—  Alan Moore English writer primarily known for his work in comic books 1953
Context: Once we were very different — our psyches constantly at war — [so] we struck a bargain, a spiritual compromise. We would grow more like each other, there would be a balance, but a bargain with a demon is no bargain at all. Demons cheat; it is their nature. Oh yes, I have grown more like Etrigan, and he… he too has grown more like Etrigan. Jason Blood, Saga of the Swamp Thing #27 ("By Demons Driven")

„The people become accustomed to obeying him, and he becomes accustomed to commanding, hence the origin of usurpation and tyranny.“

—  Simón Bolívar Venezuelan military and political leader, South American libertador 1783 - 1830
Context: The continuation of authority in the same person has frequently proved the undoing of democratic governments. Repeated elections are essential to the system of popular governments, because there is nothing so dangerous as to suffer Power to be vested for a long time in one citizen. The people become accustomed to obeying him, and he becomes accustomed to commanding, hence the origin of usurpation and tyranny. As quoted in The World’s Great Speeches, Lewis Copeland and Lawrence Lamm, edit., Dover Publications Inc. (1958) p. 386
