ALCUIN (ALBINUS)
English theologian and scholar
(735 - 804)

We would not listen to those who were wont to say the voice of the people is the voice of God, for the voice of the mob is near akin to madness.
  [Lat., Nec audiendi sunt qui solent dicere vox populi, vox dei; cum tumultus vulgi semper insaniae proxima sit.]
      - Epistle to Charlemagne (vol. I, p. 191),
        (Froben's ed. 1771), also credited to Eadmer
        [Public]

Man thinks, God directs.
  [Lat., Homo cogitat, Deu indicat.]
      - Epistles [God]
