More good quotes

Two good quotes in today's The Week. The first seems to follow the pragmatism of my post about Florence Nightingale.

“The test of police efficiency is the absence of crime and disorder, not the visible evidence of police action in dealing with it.” Robert Peel, quoted in The Independent.

“People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.” Soren Kierkegaard, quoted in The Guardian.
