He is also renowned for his ideas of political balance in the government, which was later used in Montesquieu's The Spirit of the Laws and the drafting of the United States Constitution

    δεν υπάρχει τόσο άσχημος μάρτυρας, ούτε κατηγορούμενος τόσο φοβερός όσο η συνείδηση που κατοικεί στην καρδιά κάθε ανθρώπου.

    il n'y a pas de témoignage aussi terrible, pas d'accusateur aussi terrible que la conscience qui habite le cœur de chaque homme.

    ప్రతి మనిషి హృదయంలో నివసించే మనస్సాక్షి అంత భయంకరమైన సాక్ష్యం లేదు, నిందితుడు అంత భయంకరమైనవాడు లేడు.

    没有比每个人内心深处都可怕的见证者,没有如此可怕的控告者了。
