"Civilization is a stream with banks. The stream is sometimes filled with from people , stealing, shouting and doing the things historians usually record, while on the banks, unnoticed, people build homes, make love, raise children, sing songs, write poetry and even whittle statues. The story of civilization is the story of what happened on the banks. Historians are pessimists because they ignore the banks for the river."

"I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by it's system of credit...We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world, NO longer a Government by free opinion,NO longer a Government of conviction and vote of the majority,but, a Government by opinion and the duress of a small group of dominant men."
