Society is well governed when its people obey the magistrates,
and the magistrates obey the law.
“Solon, (born c. 630 bce—died c. 560 bce), Athenian statesman, known as one of the Seven Wise Men of Greece… Solon ended exclusive aristocratic control of the government, substituted a system of control by the wealthy, and introduced a new and more humane law code. He was also a noted poet.” ~ Encyclopaedia Britannica
