“Indignation principis mors est. the anger of the prince, means death.”
Michael Farquhar, A Treasury of Royal Scandals: The Shocking True Stories of History's Wickedest, Weirdest, Most Wanton Kings, Queens, Tsars, Popes, and Emperors

“Twas the night before Christmas,
at a town in the South,
A band of ex-Confederates gathered,
down in the mouth;
That the black man was now free,
they felt was unfair,
An abomination they’d address
with terror to spare;
Crosses they’d burn with white hoods
on their head,
Spreading their message of hate
with horror and dread.” Yes, ringing in the season with Yuletide cheer, the Ku Klux Klan was officially organized in Pulaski, Tennessee, on December 24, 1865.”
Michael Farquhar, Bad Days in History: A Gleefully Grim Chronicle of Misfortune, Mayhem, and Misery for Every Day of the Year

“...od najwcześniejszego dzieciństwa nauczyliśmy się wyszukiwać w ludziach słabości, za pomocą których mogliśmy na nich wpływać.:”
Michael Farquhar, Secret Lives of the Tsars: Three Centuries of Autocracy, Debauchery, Betrayal, Murder, and Madness from Romanov Russia
