Weekend quote - Shmuel Yosef Agnon

The wise men do not partake in leading the world because they know there are even wiser men and wish the world to be led by them. Meanwhile, up jump the fools and evil men and come and take the world into their hands and lead the world according to their evil and stupid ways. From "Shira", "שירה", ש"י עגנון. הוצאת שוקן
