Simon Bolivar on revolution

He who sows a revolution ploughs the sea.

~ Simon Bolivar

The larger quote is,

America is ungovernable. He who sows a revolution ploughs the sea.

As recorded in Paul Johnson, The Birth of the Modern, Page 651. ‘America’ in this context probably means Latin America, but the comment would be prescient if the United States ultimately demonstrates that it too is ungovernable.
