For somehow this is tyranny's disease, to trust no friends.
AESCHYLUS, Prometheus Bound
- The tyrant is a child of Pride
- Who drinks from his sickening cup
- Recklessness and vanity,
- Until from his high crest headlong
- He plummets to the dust of hope.
The tyrant grinds down his slaves and they don't turn against him, they crush those beneath them.
EMILY BRONTË, Wuthering Heights
