Disillusion   

.

"The wise man, knowing how to enjoy achieved results without having constantly to replace them with others, finds in them an attachment to life in the hour of difficulty. But the man who has always pinned all his hopes on the future and lived with his eyes fixed upon it, has nothing in the past as a comfort against the present's afflictions, for the past was nothing to him but a series of hastily experienced stages. What blinded him to himself was his expectation always to find further on the happiness he had so far missed. Now he is stopped in his tracks; from now on nothing remains behind or ahead of him to fix his gaze upon." Emile Durkheim

"That the desires of the majority of the people are often for injustice and inhumanity against the minority, is demonstrated by every page of the history of the whole world"

John Adams, a signer and coauthor of the Declaration of Independence, served the newly formed United States twice as Vice President and later as the nation's second President. While in office he managed to avoid a war wish France. To the amusement of many he is known for saying that the office of Vice President is "the most insignificant office ever the invention of man contrived or his imagination conceived."
