Quote by Marquis de Sade
One weeps not save when one is afraid, and that is why kings are tyrants.
This quote suggests that fear drives people to exhibit cruel behavior and abuse power. It implies that kings, who possess immense authority, become tyrants because they are constantly afraid of losing their power. By engendering fear, they suppress dissent and perpetuate their rule. The phrase "one weeps not save when one is afraid" implies that tears or remorse are only displayed when fear is present, indicating that cruel actions are motivated by self-preservation rather than genuine empathy. Overall, the quote highlights the destructive nature of fear and its role in the emergence of tyrannical leaders.
I have studios in the different places where I live - in Ibiza, Paris and London - but they're not crazy studios, they're just rooms with good monitors, and all I do is plug my laptop in. It's a different way to make music, but for me, I love it, because it's more connected to the world.
We said that a single injustice, a single crime, a single illegality, particularly if it is officially recorded, confirmed, a single wrong to humanity, a single wrong to justice and to right, particularly if it is universally, legally, nationally, commodiously accepted, that a single crime shatters and is sufficient to shatter the whole social pact, the whole social contract, that a single legal crime, a single dishonorable act will bring about the loss of ones honor, the dishonor of a whole people. It is a touch of gangrene that corrupts the entire body.
