“Neither need you tell me,” said Candide, “that we must take care of our garden.”
Voltaire, Candide, 1795
“Shirking and sharking, in all their many varieties, have been sown broadcast by the ill-fated cause; and even those who have contemplated its history from the outermost circle of such evil, have been insensibly tempted into a loose way of letting bad things alone to take their own bad course, and a loose belief that if the world go wrong, it was, in some offhand manner, never meant to go right.”
Charles Dickens, Bleak House, 1853
