CHARLES AUSTIN BEARD
American historian and educator
(1874 - 1948)

1. Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad with power.
  2. The mills of God grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly small.
    3. The bee fertilizes the flower it robs.
      4. When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.
      - his summary of the lessons of history, in "Reader's Digest," February, 1941
        [History]

The lessons of history? There are four: The bee fertilizes the flower it robs; whom the gods would destroy they first make mad with power; the mills of God grind slowly, but they grind small; when it is dark enough, you can see the stars.
      - [History]

      - [Speech]
