"Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for 'tis better to be alone than in bad company."
"Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."

By preferring the support of domestic to that of foreign industry he intends only his own security; and by directing that industry in such a manner as its produce may be of the greatest value, he intends only his own gain, and he is in this, as in many other cases, led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was no part of his intention."
"My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint."
