Famous Quotes & Quotations About Democracy:

~ Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Democracy has not failed; the intelligence of the race has failed before the problems the race has raised.
~ Robert Maynard Hutchins.

Democracy is not the law of the majority but the protection of the minority.

~ Oscar Wilde.

Government under democracy is thus government by orgy, almost by orgasm.
~ Henry Louis Mencken.

With a library you are free, not confined by temporary political climates. It is the most democratic of institutions because no one - but no one at all - can tell you what to read and when and how.
~ Doris Lessing.
