I read the quote above on this web page: "Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber." ---Plato (427-347 B.C.)
Where does this come from? WHERE does Plato say this or write this? Can't you guys do your quotes properly? You MUST always add the book and the page where you quote from. Otherwise you could just make it up Don't you see? I can invent any quote and attribute it to anybody, and it will be very hard to prove that he did NOT say it.
My warning is: Never believe any quote unless it is stated where you can find it in the writings of the quoted author.
Best example: "England and America are two countries separated by the same language" George Bernard Shaw. You find this sentence in almost every book of quotations, and on every quotations website. The one place where you do not find it is in G.B. Shaw's writings. It just isn't from him...
