I love being a writer. What I can’t stand is the paperwork.
Bureaucracy is the death of any achievement.
Remove the document, and you remove the man.
The atmosphere of officialdom would kill anything that breathes the air of human endeavor.
Poor fellow, he suffers from files.
Bureaucrats: they are dead at 30 and buried at 60.
We can lick gravity, but sometimes the paperwork is overwhelming.
There is something about a bureaucrat that does not like a poem.
Bureaucracy is not an obstacle to democracy but an inevitable complement to it.
The working of great institutions is mainly the result of a vast mass of routine, petty malice, self-interest, carelessness and sheer mistake.
