A pure democracy is a society consisting of a small number of citizens who assemble and administer the government in person.

Fill yourself with love. Love should express itself in service to society. You should look upon society this way. We exist for society and society exists for the good of all.

There is no doubt that it is around the family and the home that all the greatest virtues the most dominating virtues of human society are created strengthened and maintained

Winston Churchill
