„Any strategy that involves crossing a valley—accepting short-term losses to reach a higher hill in the distance—will soon be brought to a halt by the demands of a system that celebrates short-term gains and tolerates stagnation, but condemns anything else as failure. In short, a world where big stuff can never get done.“

„Widespread intellectual and moral docility may be convenient for leaders in the short term, but it is suicidal for nations in the long term.“

—  Carl Sagan American astrophysicist, cosmologist, author and science educator 1934 - 1996
Context: Widespread intellectual and moral docility may be convenient for leaders in the short term, but it is suicidal for nations in the long term. One of the criteria for national leadership should therefore be a talent for understanding, encouraging, and making constructive use of vigorous criticism. Chapter 14, "The Common Enemy"
