"There are three classes of citizens.

The first are the rich,
who are indolent
and yet always crave more.

The second are the poor,
who have nothing,
are full of envy,
hate the rich,
and are easily led by demagogues.

Between the two extremes
lie those
who make the state secure
and uphold the laws."

(Euripides - The Suppliants c. 420 B.C.)
