Here is one I find quite applicable to today thought it was written hundreds of years ago by Frederich Basitat in his book "The Law".
"It would be impossible, therefore, to introduce into society a greater change and a greater evil than this—the conversion of the law into an instrument of plunder."
This is an excellent book.
"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." Benjamin Franklin
