The strongest man is never strong enough to be always master, unless he transforms his power into right, and obedience into duty. - Jean-Jacques Rousseau (The Social Contract, or Principles of Political Right Quotes)

The strongest man is never strong enough to be always master, unless he transforms his power into right, and obedience into duty.[Le plus fort n’est jamais assez fort pour être toujours le maître, s’il ne transforme sa force en droit, et l’obéissance en devoir.]
