Is anarchism possible? The failure of attempts to attain freedom does not mean the cause is lost.
-- Johann Most

What a piece of work is a man, How noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an Angel!

In apprehension how like a god, the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals. and yet to me, what is this quintessence of dust?

Man delights not me; no, nor woman neither; though by your smiling you seeme to say so
โ€“ Shakespeare, The Tragedy of Hamlet (Act II, Scene II)

A quotation by Bastiat, Frederic
No society can exist unless the laws are respected to a certain degree. The safest way to make laws respected is to make them respectable. When law and morality contradict each other, the citizen has the cruel alternative of either losing his moral sense or losing his respect for the law.

[Aucune sociรฉtรฉ ne peut exister si le respect des Lois nโ€™y rรจgne ร  quelque degrรฉ ; mais le plus sรปr, pour que les lois soient respectรฉes, cโ€™est quโ€™elles soient respectables. Quand la Loi et la Morale sont en contradiction, le citoyen se trouve dans la cruelle alternative ou de perdre la notion de Morale ou de perdre le respect de la Loi.]
Frรฉdรฉric Bastiat (1801-1850) French philosopher, economist, politician
The Law [La Loi] (1850) [tr. Russell]
