Top 5 quotes from Daniel Webster
"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
"It is my living sentiment, and by the blessing of God it shall be my dying sentiment, independence now and independence forever."
"An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, the power to destroy."
"Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government."
"The world is governed more by appearances than realities, so that it is fully as necessary to seem to know something as to know it."
Top 5 quotes from America, Government
"When dictatorship is a fact, revolution becomes a right."
"The best defense against usurpatory government is an assertive citizenry."
"Little else is requisite to carry a state to the highest degree of opulence from the lowest barbarism but peace, easy taxes, and a tolerable administration of justice: all the rest being brought about by the natural course of things."
"Egalitarians create the most dangerous inequality of all -- inequality of power. Allowing politicians to determine what all other human beings will be allowed to earn is one of the most reckless gambles imaginable. Like the income tax, it may start off being applied only to the rich but it will inevitably reach us all."
"Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption."
