Quote of the day II

This passage popped into FLG's head today as he was thinking about NATO, multinational organizations, international law, and other such things that he has no business thinking about:
a mere decree is worthless without a willingness on your part to put your resolutions into practice. If decrees could automatically compel you to do your duty, or could accomplish the objects for which they were proposed, you would not have passed such an array of them with little or no result, and Philip would not have had such a long career of insolent triumph. Long ago, if decrees counted for anything, he would have suffered for his sins.
