SERVITUDE
[ Also see Servility Slavery ]

Men in great places are thrice servants,--servants of the sovereign or state, servants of fame, and servants of business; so that they have no freedom, neither in their persons, nor in their actions, nor in their times.
      - Francis Bacon

All are born to observe laws; few are born to establish them.
      - Thomas Carlyle

To use the hands in making quicklime into mortar is better than to cross them on the breast in attendance on a prince.
      - Moslih Eddin (Muslih-un-Din) Saadi (Sadi)

Servitude seizes on few, but many seize on her.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

I have been formerly so silly as to hope that every servant I had might be made a friend; I am now convinced that the nature of servitude generally bears a contrary tendency. People's characters are to be chiefly collected from their education and place in life; birth itself does but little.
      - William Shenstone

We become willing servants to the good by the bonds their virtues lay upon us.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

It is fit and necessary that some persons in the world should be in love with a splendid servitude.
      - Bishop Robert South

Servitude is inherent; we are all slaves to duty or to force.
      - Marguerite de Valois

Slavery is as ancient as war, and war as human nature.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)
