Aside from my signature I like to use a quote from CS Lewis ”...a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.”

The full quote is – “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

More whimsically and somewhat apropos to LJ’s is “Marmota Monax and Forest Product Propulsion: Just Exactly How Much Wood Would a Woodchuck Chuck?”
