Government quotes
Government
Many people consider the things government does for them to be social progress, but they consider the things government does for others as socialism.

- Warren, Earl
In general, the art of government consists in taking as much money as possible from one part of the citizens to give to the other.

- Voltaire
The man who will follow precedent, but never create one, is merely an obvious example of the routineer. You find him desperately numerous in the civil service, in the official bureaus. To him government is something given as unconditionally, as absolutely as ocean or hill. He goes on winding the tape that he finds. His imagination has rarely extricated itself from under the administrative machine to gain any sense of what a human, temporary contraption the whole affair is. What he thinks is the heavens above him is nothing but the roof.

- Lippmann, Walter
Now a writer can make himself a nice career while he is alive by espousing a political cause, working for it, making a profession of believing in it, and if it wins he will be very well placed. All politics is a matter of working hard without reward, or with a living wage for a time, in the hope of booty later. A man can be a Fascist or a Communist and if his outfit gets in he can get to be an ambassador or have a million copies of his books printed by the Government or any of the other rewards the boys dream about.

- Hemingway, Ernest
I say to myself that I mustn't let myself be cut off in there, and yet the moment I enter my bag is taken out of my hand, I'm pushed in, shepherded, nursed and above all cut off, alone. Whitehall envelops me.

- Crossman, Richard
Newsmen believe that news is a tacitly acknowledged fourth branch of the federal system. This is why most news about government sounds as if it were federally mandated -- serious, bulky and blandly worthwhile, like a high-fiber diet set in type.

- O'Rourke, P. J.
During these times, when crazy people are running the government, all you can do is laugh.

- Bill McKenney
The worst thing in the world next to anarchy, is government.

- Beecher, Henry Ward
Government and cooperation are in all things the laws of life. Anarchy and competition, the laws of death.

- Ruskin, John
That government is best which governs the least, because its people discipline themselves.

- Thomas Jefferson
Revolution, n. In politics, an abrupt change in the form of misgovernment.

- Ambrose Bierce
The mightiest of weapons is truth. And everyone knows youĂre not permitted to enter a Government building with a weapon.

- John Alejandro King
A little group of willful men reflecting no opinion but their own have rendered the great Government of the United States helpless and contemptible.

- Wilson, Woodrow T.
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
We are the men of intrinsic value, who can strike our fortunes out of ourselves, whose worth is independent of accidents in life, or revolutions in government: we have heads to get money, and hearts to spend it.

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

- Thomas Jefferson
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
The taxpayer; that's someone who works for the federal government, but doesn't have to take a civil service examination.

- Reagan, Ronald
In quiet and untroubled times it seems to every administrator that it is only by his efforts that the whole population under his rule is kept going, and in this consciousness of being indispensable every administrator finds the chief reward of his labor and efforts. While the sea of history remains calm the ruler-administrator in his frail bark, holding on with a boat hook to the ship of the people and himself moving, naturally imagines that his efforts move the ship he is holding on to. But as soon as a storm arises and the sea begins to heave and the ship to move, such a delusion is no longer possible. The ship moves independently with its own enormous motion, the boat hook no longer reaches the moving vessel, and suddenly the administrator, instead of appearing a ruler and a source of power, becomes an insignificant, useless, feeble man.

- Tolstoy, Count Leo
Not wishing to be disturbed over moral issues of the political economy, Americans cling to the notion that the government is a sort of automatic machine, regulated by the balancing of competing interests.

- Mills, C. Wright
