Rise and Fall

The best instituted governments, carry in them the seeds of their destruction: and, though they grow and improve for a time, they will soon tend visibly to their dissolution. Every hour they live is an hour the less that they have to live.
Henry St. John, First Viscount Bolingbroke, 1738
  A British political philosopher who was very influential for the US Founding Fathers and Voltaire
