- 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
