Alexander Hamilton quotes (28)

A national debt, if it is not excessive, will be to us a national blessing.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

A promise must never be broken.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

A well adjusted person is one who makes the same mistake twice without getting nervous.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

Constitutions should consist only of general provisions; the reason is that they must necessarily be permanent, and that they cannot calculate for the possible change of things.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

Even to observe neutrality you must have a strong government.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

Here, sir, the people govern; here they act by their immediate representatives.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

I never expect to see a perfect work from an imperfect man.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

I think the first duty of society is justice.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

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.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

In politics, as in religion, it is equally absurd to aim at making proselytes by fire and sword. Heresies in either can rarely be cured by persecution.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

In the general course of human nature, A power over a man's subsistence amounts to a power over his will.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

In the main it will be found that a power over a man's support (salary) is a power over his will.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

In the usual progress of things, the necessities of a nation in every stage of its existence will be found at least equal to its resources.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

It is the advertiser who provides the paper for the subscriber. It is not to be disputed, that the publisher of a newspaper in this country, without a very exhaustive advertising support, would receive less reward for his labor than the humblest mechanic.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

It's not tyranny we desire; it's a just, limited, federal government.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

Learn to think continentally.
Alexander Hamilton   Category: Education

Man is a reasoning rather than a reasonable animal.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

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.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

Nobody expects to trust his body overmuch after the age of fifty.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

Power over a man's subsistence is power over his will.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

Real firmness is good for anything; strut is good for nothing.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

The voice of the people has been said to be the voice of God; and, however generally this maxim has been quoted and believed, it is not true to fact. The people are turbulent and changing, they seldom judge or determine right.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

There is a certain enthusiasm in liberty, that makes human nature rise above itself, in acts of bravery and heroism.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.
Alexander Hamilton   Category: Politics

When the sword is once drawn, the passions of men observe no bounds of moderation.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

Why has government been instituted at all? Because the passions of man will not conform to the dictates of reason and justice without constraint.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:

You should not have taken advantage of my sensibility to steal into my affections without my consent.
Alexander Hamilton   Category:
