"It is thought that the peculiar merit of Democracy lies in this: that it gives every man a chance to pursue his own ends. The reverse is true. The merit lies in the assumption imposed upon every man that he shall serve his fellow men. This is by the law of his being." - John Jay Chapman

Found this in my book on the Old Rich in America. Now in Seattle for a wedding which takes this kind of democracy to heart.
