"Men in great place are thrice servants--servants of the sovereign or state, servants of fame, and servants of business; so as they have no freedom, neither in their persons, nor in their actions, nor in their times.   It is a strange desire to seek power and to lose liberty; or to seek power over others and to lose power over a man's self.   The rising unto place is laborious, and by pains men come to greater pains; and it is sometimes base, and by indignities men come to dignities."
-- Francis Bacon
