Semi-serious but dates back to 1829 (Robert Peel), "the police are the public and the public are the police" because it's mistake (I think) to imagine you can rely entirely on para-military style coppers, unless you want enormous expense and no liberty at all. And as, in a good democracy, even the laws are made collectively, too.
