    “Police, at all times, should maintain a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.”

    ~ Sir Robert Peel

    "John Hobart was a sadistic sociopath—of that there was no doubt. But, while you wouldn't want someone with those failings to marry your daughter, they weren't bad allies in a gunfight."

    A man said to the universe:
    "Sir I exist!"
    "However," replied the universe,
    "The fact has not created in me
    A sense of obligation."

    I remember reading that somewhere! It reminds me of a Calvin and Hobbes comic strip I read once. In the first panel, Calvin is looking up at a night sky awash with stars. In a loud voice, he yells, "I'M SIGNIFICANT!" In the second panel, he says (in a quieter voice), "...screamed the dust speck."
