Let the people think they govern and they will be governed.
Majority rule only works if you’re also considering individual rights. Because you can’t have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
Talk is cheap – except when Congress does it.
Government is an unnecessary evil. Human beings, when accustomed to taking responsibility for their own behavior, can cooperate on a basis of mutual trust and helpfulness.
Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.
