Alexander Hamilton Quote: “An over-scrupulous jealousy of danger to the rights of the people, which is more commonly the fault of the head than of the heart, will be represented as mere pretense and artifice, the stale bait for popularity at the expense of the public good.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The local interest of a State ought in every case to give way to the interests of the Union. For when a sacrifice of one or the other is necessary, the former becomes only an apparent, partial interest, and should yield, on the principle that the smaller good ought never to oppose the greater good.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Is it not time to awake from the deceitful dream of a golden age, and to adopt as a practical maxim for the direction of our political conduct, that we, as well as the other inhabitants of the globe, are yet remote from the happy empire of perfect wisdom and perfect virtue?”

Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Remember civil and religious liberty always go together: if the foundation of the one be sapped, the other will fall of course.”

Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Opinion, whether well or ill-founded, is the governing principle of human affairs.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “I have a tender reliance on the mercy of the Almighty, through the merits of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am a sinner. I look to Him for mercy; pray for me.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “As to Taxes, they are evidently inseparable from Government. It is impossible without them to pay the debts of the nation, to protect it from foreign danger, or to secure individuals from lawless violence and rapine.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “No character, however upright, is a match for constantly reiterated attacks, however false.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “In testimony of their Respect For The Patriot of incorruptible Integrity, The Soldier of approved Valour The Statesman of consummate Wisdom; Whose Talents and Virtues will be admired By Grateful Posterity Long after this Marble shall have mouldered into Dust.”

Alexander Hamilton Quote: “If mankind were to resolve to agree in no institution of government, until every part of it had been adjusted to the most exact standard of perfection, society would soon become a general scene of anarchy, and the world a desert.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “If we are in earnest about giving the Union energy and duration we must abandon the vain project of legislating upon the States in their collective capacities.”

Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Those who do not industrialize become hewers of wood and hawkers of water.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “To judge from the history of mankind, we shall be compelled to conclude, that the fiery and destructive passions of war, reign in the human breast, with much more powerful sway, than the mild and beneficent sentiments of peace.”
