Best Quotes about Government
It is doubtful that the government knows much more than the public does about how government [Economic] policies will work.
Wallis, W. Allen
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.
Remember that a government big enough to give you everything you want is also big enough to take away everything you have.
When our government is spoken of as some menacing, threatening, foreign entity, it ignores the fact that in our democracy, government is us.
President Barack Obama
If you join government, calmly make your contribution and move on. Don't go along to get along; do your best and when you have to -- and you will -- leave, and be something else.
The best government is a benevolent tyranny tempered by an occasional assassination.
Our Congress is the finest body of men money can buy.
The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government.
The art of government is not to let me grow stale.
It is the duty of the President to propose and it is the privilege of the Congress to dispose.
Roosevelt, Franklin D.
Any government is potentially the worst client in the world you could ever possibly want to have.
It is the duty of government to make it difficult for people to do wrong, easy to do right.
Gladstone, William E.
I love my government not least for the extent to which it leaves me alone.
Every form of government tends to perish by excess of its basic principles.
Durant, William J.
For every action there is an equal and opposite government program.
Of the best rulers, The people only know that they exist; the next best they love and praise the next they fear; and the next they revile. When they do not command the people's faith, some will lose faith in them, and then they resort to oaths! But of the best when their task is accomplished, their work done, the people all remark, We have done it ourselves.
Government is at best but an expedient; but most governments are usually, and all governments are sometimes, inexpedient. The objections which have been brought against a standing army, and they are many and weighty, and deserve to prevail, may also at last be brought against a standing government.
Thoreau, Henry David
Fear is the foundation of most government.
Nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced.
The contented and economically comfortable have a very discriminating view of government. Nobody is ever indignant about bailing out failed banks and failed savings and loans associations. But when taxes must be paid for the lower middle class and poor, the government assumes an aspect of wickedness.
Galbraith, John Kenneth
An ambassador is an honest person sent to lie abroad for their country.
Wotton, Sir Henry
What is government itself but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.
Safety of the state is the highest law.
But their determination to banish fools foundered ultimately in the installation of absolute idiots.
Too bad that all the people who know how to run the country are busy driving taxicabs and cutting hair.
Congress is so strange. A man gets up to speak and says nothing. Nobody listens, then everybody disagrees.
Large legislative bodies resolve themselves into coteries, and coteries into jealousies.
To rule is not so much a question of the heavy hand as the firm seat.
Gasset, Jose Ortega Y
The government is best which makes itself unnecessary.
Humboldt, Karl Wilhelm Von
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.
The whole country is one vast insane asylum and they're letting the worst patients run the place.
In the councils of a state, the question is not so much, what ought to be done? As, what can be done?
The government can destroy wealth but it cannot create wealth, which is the product of labor and management working with creation.
The greater the hold of government upon the life of the individual citizen, the greater the risk of war.
The worst thing in the world next to anarchy, is government.
Beecher, Henry Ward
Nothing is more surprising than the easiness with which the many are governed by the few.
Beaverbrook is so pleased to be in the government that he is like the town tart who finally married the Mayor.
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.
Thou camest out of thy mother's belly without government, thou hast liv'd hitherto without government, and thou mayst be carried to thy long home without government, when it shall please the Lord. How many people in this world live without government, yet do well enough, and are well look'd upon?
Cervantes, Miguel De
A government, for protecting business only, is but a carcass, and soon falls by its own corruption and decay.
Alcott, Amos Bronson
Generosity is a part of my character, and I therefore hasten to assure this Government that I will never make an allegation of dishonesty against it wherever a simple explanation of stupidity will suffice.
Lever, Leslie Baron
Even to observe neutrality you must have a strong government.
We have the best government that money can buy.
The government is huge, stupid, greedy and makes nosy, officious and dangerous intrusions into the smallest corners of life -- this much we can stand. But the real problem is that government is boring. We could cure or mitigate the other ills Washington visits on us if we could only bring ourselves to pay attention to Washington itself. But we cannot.
O'Rourke, P. J.
Believe me - the Government will help you anytime it needs you.
The basis of effective government is public confidence.
Kennedy, John F.
It is hard to feel individually responsible with respect to the invisible processes of a huge and distant government.
Gardner, John W.
Whenever the people are well informed, they can be trusted with their own government; that whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights.
Well, fancy giving money to the Government! Might as well have put it down the drain.
Herbert, A. P.
So they [the Government] go on in strange paradox, decided only to be undecided, resolved to be irresolute, adamant for drift, solid for fluidity, all-powerful to be impotent.
Sir Winston Churchill
