Brogan and de Tocqueville quotes...

Two quotes that stood out to me today:

"The men of the eighteenth century came to expect, and inexorably to demand, more than the seventeenth-century ordering of their world could possibly provide." (Hugh Brogan)

"The system that a revolution destroys is almost always better than that which immediately preceeded it, and experience teaches that the most dangerous moment for a bad government is usually that in which it begins to reform." (Alexis de Tocqueville)
