The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.


History, in general, only informs us of what bad government is


Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty.

I have no fear that the result of our experiment will be that men may be trusted to govern themselves without a master.

A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned

Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.

I predict future happiness for Americans, if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.

and a personal favorite...
