John Pierpont Morgan

“Seek truth from facts” 實事求是

— first quoted by Mao Zedong and further promoted by Deng Xiaoping

Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty
has always come from the subjects of government. The
history of liberty is the history of resistance. The history
of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental
power, not the increase of it

— Woodrow Wilson
