Two Quotes

“Just as in the music of harps and flutes or in the voices of singers a certain harmony of the different tones must be maintained . . . So also a state is made harmonious by agreement among dissimilar elements. This is brought about by a fair and reasonable blending of the upper, middle and lower classes, just as if they were musical tones. What musicians call harmony in song is concord in state.”

“Order is the dream of man while chaos is the reality of nature.”
- Henry Brooks Adams
