Lin Yutang (1895-1976) Chinese writer

“The scamp will be the last and most formidable enemy of dictatorships.  He will be the champion of human dignity and individual freedom, and will be the last to be conquered.  All modern civilization depends entirely upon him.”

 — Lin Yutang (1895-1976) Chinese writer, in `The Importance of Living’ 1937
