“It should be known that at the beginning of a dynasty, taxation yields a large revenue from small assessments. At the end of the dynasty, taxation yields a small revenue from large assessments.”

Abd-ar-Rah.mân Abû Zayd ibn Khaldûn (1332-1406)

Great quote! Do you have any info about the original work that came from? I did a couple web searches, and see the quote verbatim, but not the source.
