Government quotes
Government
1.

We have the best government that money can buy.

- Twain, Mark
2.

I really do inhabit a system in which words are capable of shaking the entire structure of government, where words can prove mightier than ten military divisions.

- Havel, Vaclav
3.

If I were to be taken hostage, I would not plead for release nor would I want my government to be blackmailed. I think certain government officials, industrialists and celebrated persons should make it clear they are prepared to be sacrificed if taken hostage. If that were done, what gain would there be for terrorists in taking hostages?

- Mead, Margaret
4.

Authority has always attracted the lowest elements in the human race. All through history mankind has been bullied by scum. Those who lord it over their fellows and toss commands in every direction and would boss the grass in the meadow about which way to bend in the wind are the most depraved kind of prostitutes. They will submit to any indignity, perform any vile act, do anything to achieve power. The worst off-sloughings of the planet are the ingredients of sovereignty. Every government is a parliament of whores. The trouble is, in a democracy the whores are us.

- O'Rourke, P. J.
5.

I am against government by crony.

- Ickes, Harold L.
6.

A government is the only known vessel that leaks from the top.

- James Reston
7.

Mistakes, scandals, and failures no longer signal catastrophe. The crucial thing is that they be made credible, and that the public be made aware of the efforts being expended in that direction. The marketing immunity of governments is similar to that of the major brands of washing powder.

- Baudrillard, Jean
8.

The instant formal government is abolished, society begins to act. A general association takes place, and common interest produces common security.

- Thomas Paine
9.

Disbelief in magic can force a poor soul into believing in government and business.

- Tom Robbins
10.

A house divided against itself cannot stand -- I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free.

- Lincoln, Abraham
11.

I believe that truth is the glue that holds government together, not only our government but civilization itself.

- Gerald R. Ford
12.

Governing today means giving acceptable signs of credibility. It is like advertising and it is the same effect that is achieved -- commitment to a scenario.

- Baudrillard, Jean
13.

A little rebellion now and then...is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government.

- Thomas Jefferson
14.

No government ought to be without censors; and where the press is free, no one ever will. Chance is the pseudonym of God when he did not want to sign.

- France, Anatole
15.

There's new energy to harness, new jobs to be created, new schools to build, and threats to meet, alliances to repair. The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep. We may not get there in one year or even in one term. But, America, I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there. I promise you, we as a people will get there. There will be setbacks and false starts. There are many who won't agree with every decision or policy I make as president. And we know the government can't solve every problem. But I will always be honest with you about the challenges we face. I will listen to you, especially when we disagree. And, above all, I will ask you to join in the work of remaking this nation, the only way it's been done in America for 221 years block by block, brick by brick, calloused hand by calloused hand.

- Barack Obama
16.

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
17.

I'm interested in the capitalistic way of life, and the reason I like it better than anything else I've seen so far is because competition produces results. Every socialistic type of government where the State theoretically owns everything, and everybody does their little part to help the State, inevitably produces bad art, it produces social inertia, it produces really unhappy people, and it is more repressive than any other kind of government.

- Frank Zappa
18.

All in all, I am not surprised that the people who want to unravel the social contract start with young adults. Those who are urged to feel afraid, very afraid, have both the greatest sense of independence and the most finely honed skepticism about government.

- Ellen Goodman
19.

Besides anarchy, the worst thing in this world is government.

- Henry Ward Beecher
20.

Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under.

- H. L. Mencken
