And those who were seen dancing
were thought to be insane
by those who could not hear the music.

The Course of Empire
Foundation
The fall of Empire, gentlemen, is a massive thing, however, and not easily fought. It is dictated by a rising bureaucracy, a receding initiative, a freezing of caste, a damming of curiosity—a hundred other factors. It has been going on, as I have said, for centuries, and it is too majestic and massive a movement to stop.
· Isaac Asimov
