Top 5 quotes from Alexander Hamilton
"In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men the great difficulty lies in this: You must first enable the government to control the governed, and in the next place, oblige it to control itself."
"Those who stand for nothing fall for anything."
"Why has government been instituted at all? Because the passions of men will not conform to the dictates of reason and justice, without constraint."
"A national debt, if it is not excessive, will be to us a national blessing."
"Men often oppose a thing merely because they have had no agency in planning it, or because it may have been planned by those whom they dislike."
Top 5 quotes from Miscellaneous
"Sex and creativity are often seen by dictators as subversive activities."
"Everything in the world may be endured except continued prosperity."
"Man has almost constant occasion for the help of his brethren, and it is in vain for him to expect it from their benevolence only."
"Every individual...generally, indeed, neither intends to promote the public interest, nor knows how much he is promoting it. 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."
