Wednesday’s Piece

“A monarchy is a merchantman which sails well, but will sometimes strike on a rock, and go to the bottom; a republic is a raft which will never sink, but then your feet are always in the water.”

(Speech in the House of Representatives by Fisher Ames, 1758 – 1808)

John Lentell

28th May, 1969
