Quotes edit

  • Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. When I say to the wicked, ‘You wicked person, you will surely die,’ and you do not speak out to dissuade them from their ways, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. But if you do warn the wicked person to turn from their ways and they do not do so, they will die for their sin, though you yourself will be saved.
  • Sed quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
    • But who will guard the guards themselves? (Alternatively, “who watches the watchmen?”)
      • Juvenal, Satire VI, line 347, referenced in Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’s Watchmen
