• What is hateful…is not rebellion but the despotism which induces the rebellion;
  • what is hateful are not rebels but the men, who, having the enjoyment of power, do not discharge the duties of power;
  • they are the men who, having the power to redress wrongs, refuse to listen to the petitioners that are sent to them;
  • they are the men who, when they are asked for a loaf, give a stone.

— Sir Wilfrid Laurier
