      - Christian Nestell Bovee

The voice of the majority is no proof of justice.
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller

Votes should be weighed, not counted!
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller

The fact disclosed by a survey of the past that majorities have been wrong must not blind us to the complementary fact that majorities have usually not been entirely wrong.
      - Herbert Spencer

It never troubles the wolf how many the sheep be.
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil)

In a free and republican government, you cannot restrain the voice of the multitude.
      - George Washington
