When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

When righteous men do rejoice, there is great glory: but when the wicked rise, a man is hidden.
Proverbs 28:12

When the wicked rise, men hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase.
Proverbs 28:28

When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.
Proverbs 11:10

"Good governance never depends upon laws, but upon the personal qualities of those who govern. The machinery of government is always subordinate to the will of those who administer that machinery. The most important element of government, therefore, is the method of choosing leaders." -- Frank Herbert

"Authority is ability to rule. Dominion is rulership." -- Sherry K. White

"The secret of rulership is to combine a belief in one’s own infallibility with a power to learn from past mistakes." -- George Orwell, 1984

"The object of government in peace and in war is not the glory of rulers or of races, but the happiness of common man." -- William Beveridge
