Some favorite quotes

--That government is best which governs the least, because its people discipline themselves.
--The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
--The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.
