Night Watch, Terry Pratchett

Two types of people laugh at the law: those that break it and those that make it.

Don't put your trust in revolutions. They always come around again. That's why they're called revolutions. People die, and nothing changes.

People on the side of The People always ended up disappointed, in any case. They found that The People tended not to be grateful or appreciative or forward-thinking or obedient. The People tended to be small-minded and conservative and not very clever and were even distrustful of cleverness. And so the children of the revolution were faced with the age-old problem: it wasn't that you had the wrong kind of goverment, wich was obvious, but that you had the wrong kind of people.

When you're falling off the cliff it's too late to wonder if there might have been a better way up the mountain.

If you complain too loudly when you lose, you might not be asked to play again.
