I'm listening to the second book in the Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy (yes, trilogy, even with 5 books), The Restaurant at the End of the Universe and wanted to share a quote:
One of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them: It is a well known fact, that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. Anyone who is capable of getting themselves into a position of power should on no account be allowed to do the job. Another problem with governing people is people.
English humorist & science fiction novelist (1952 - 2001)
