"Revolution is rarely in itself a pleasant thing.

Even without violence some nice people and nice things tend to get upset."

Greece and the Hellenistic World (1986), John Boardman, Jasper Griffin, Oswyn Murray

(Actually, it is George Forrest in the chapter Greece: The History of the Archaic Period)
