Words we live by

Wherever the people are well informed they can be trusted with their own government; that whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights.

—Thomas Jefferson, 1789

Where there is a free press the governors must live in constant awe of the opinions of the governed.

—Lord Macaulay
