Government quotes

- Ray, Dixie Lee
The art of government is not to let me grow stale.

- Bonaparte, Napoleon
An elephant: A mouse built to government specifications.

- Excerpt from the notebooks of Lazarus Long
We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.

- John Adams
The point to remember is what government gives it must first take away

- Dame Edith Sitwell
Men are to be guided only by their self-interests. Good government is a good balancing of these; and, except a keen eye and appetite for self-interest, requires no virtue in any quarter. To both parties it is emphatically a machine: to the discontented, a taxing-machine; to the contented, a machine for securing property. Its duties and its faults are not those of a father, but of an active parish-constable.

- Carlyle, Thomas
It was once said that the moral test of Government is how that Government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.

- Hubert H. Humphrey
Why has government been instituted at all? Because the passions of men will not conform to the dictates of reason and justice, without constraint.

- Alexander Hamilton
I do not call the sod under my feet my country; but language -- religion -- government -- blood -- identity in these makes men of one country.

- Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
When I am abroad, I always make it a rule never to criticize or attack the government of my own country. I make up for lost time when I come home.

- Sir Winston Churchill
The government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office.

- H. L. Mencken
God, Private Enterprise and government have made me what I am, and now they have to take some of the blame.

- Baluch, Joy
PRESBYTERIAN, n. One who holds the conviction that the government authorities of the Church should be called presbyters.

- Ambrose Bierce
There is not a man in the country that can't make a living for himself and family. But he can't make a living for them and his government, too, the way his government is living. What the government has got to do is live as cheap as the people.

- Will Rogers
