„The three greatest fools of History have been Jesus Christ, Don Quixote . . . and me!“

— Simón Bolívar
Context: The three greatest fools of History have been Jesus Christ, Don Quixote... and me! Words reportedly said to his physician in his final days, but not his last words, as quoted in Our Lord Don Quixote : The Life of Don Quixote and Sancho, with Related Essays (1967) by Miguel de Unamuno, as translated by Anthony Kerrigan, p. 386 <!-- The original Spanish of this or other variants would be very welcome here. --> The exact word used by Bolívar in Spanish is "majadero", whose meaning is "a person who insists with inopportune obstinacy in a pretension." Variant translations or versions: The three greatest fools of history have been Jesus Christ, Don Quixote — and I! As quoted in Simón Bolívar and Spanish American Independence, 1783-1830 (1968) by John J. Johnson and Doris M. Ladd, p. 115 The three greatest idiots in history, have been Jesus Christ, Don Quixote, and myself. As quoted in Nineteenth-century Gallery : Portraits of Power and Rebellion (1970) by Stanley Edward Ayling, p. 122 In the course of history, there have been three radicals: Jesus Christ, Don Quixote, and... me. The three biggest fools in the world have been Jesus Christ, Don Quixote, and... me. Jesus Christ, Don Quixote and I: three greatest fools of history. We have sewn the sea — Jesus Christ, Don Quixote and me: the three great fools of history... I’ve been plowing in the sea. Jesus Christ, Don Quixote and I — the three great mavericks of history.

„The people become accustomed to obeying him, and he becomes accustomed to commanding, hence the origin of usurpation and tyranny.“

— Simón Bolívar
Context: The continuation of authority in the same person has frequently proved the undoing of democratic governments. Repeated elections are essential to the system of popular governments, because there is nothing so dangerous as to suffer Power to be vested for a long time in one citizen. The people become accustomed to obeying him, and he becomes accustomed to commanding, hence the origin of usurpation and tyranny. As quoted in The World’s Great Speeches, Lewis Copeland and Lawrence Lamm, edit., Dover Publications Inc. (1958) p. 386

„The distinguishing characteristic of small republics is stability: the character of large republics is mutability.“

— Simón Bolívar
Context: A state too expensive in itself, or by virtue of its dependencies, ultimately falls into decay; its free government is transformed into a tyranny; it disregards the principles which it should preserve, and finally degenerates into despotism. The distinguishing characteristic of small republics is stability: the character of large republics is mutability. Letter from Jamaica (Summer 1815)
