Alexis de Tocqueville also said...


Amongst democratic nations, each new generation is a new people.





When the past no longer illuminates the future, the spirit walks in darkness.





The nations of our time cannot prevent the conditions of men from becoming equal; but it depends upon themselves whether the principle of equality is to lead them to servitude or freedom, to knowledge or barbarism, to prosperity or to wretchedness.





Nations do not grow old in the same way that men do. Each generation born within the nation is like a new people.





What is most important for democracy is not that great fortunes should not exist, but that great fortunes should not remain in the same hands. In that way there are rich men, but they do not form a class.





The power of the periodical press is second only to that of the people.
