Abraham Lincoln

“We must prevent these things being done, by either congresses or courts. The people are the rightful masters of both Congresses and courts. Not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it.”
Abraham Lincoln

“At the height of Justinian’s rule, the Byzantine Empire came under attack and he wanted to flee. He didn’t think he could fight off the invaders and wanted to at least escape with his life. But his wife challenged him, telling him it would be better to die an emperor than to spend the rest of his life wandering as a fugitive. Justinian followed his wife’s advice and stayed put. The result? He won the battle. And he remained the emperor.”
