Jonathan Swift

“And he gave it for his opinion, "that whoever could make two ears of corn, or two blades of grass, to grow upon a spot of ground where only one grew before, would deserve better of mankind, and do more essential service to his country, than the whole race of politicians put together.”


Jonathan Swift, Gulliver's Travels: Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World.
