Hail! That man there

I think I might include a Quote For The Day somewhere in this stuff. However, I doubt that I could find one as apposite as this:

"The more numerous the laws, the more corrupt the government."
  • Variant: "The more corrupt the state, the more laws."

  • Original Quote: "And now bills were passed, not only for national objects but for individual cases, and laws were most numerous when the commonwealth was most corrupt." -- Annals 3.27”
The Annals, or, in Latin, Annales, is a history book by Tacitus covering the reign of the 4 Roman Emperors succeeding to Caesar Augustus.

Not only a Quote For The Day but also a Quote Of The Day
