Man Is Insatiable For Power ~ Joseph de Maistre

“Man is insatiable for power; he is infantile in his desires and, always discontented with what he has, loves only what he has not. People complain of the despotism of princes; they ought to complain of the despotism of man.”
~ Joseph de Maistre (April 1, 1753 – February 26, 1821) Philosopher

Books Are The Windows Of The Truth ~ Louis Claude de Saint-Martin

~ Louis Claude de Saint-Martin (January 18, 1743 – October 13, 1803) Philosopher
