Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Caution and investigation are a necessary armor against error and imposition.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “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 Quote: “In this distribution of powers the wisdom of our constitution is manifested. It is the province and duty of the Executive to preserve to the Nation the blessings of peace. The Legislature alone can interrupt those blessings, by placing the Nation in a state of War.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The same state of the passions which fits the multitude, who have not a sufficient stock of reason and knowledge to guide them, for opposition to tyranny and oppression, very naturally leads them to a contempt and disregard of all authority.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Every nation ought to have a right to provide for its own happiness.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “And it proves, in the last place, that liberty can have nothing to fear from the judiciary alone, but would have everything to fear from its union with either of the other departments.”

Alexander Hamilton Quote: “In the general course of human nature, A power over a man’s subsistence amounts to a power over his will.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The Christian Constitutional Society, its object is first: The support of the Christian religion. Second: The support of the United States.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “No man in his senses can hesitate in choosing to be free, rather than a slave.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Now, mark my words. So long as we are a young and virtuous people, this instument will bind us together in mutual interests, mutual welfare, and mutual happiness. But when we become old and corrupt, it will bind no longer.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Who talks most about freedom and equality? Is it not those who hold the bill of rights in one hand and a whip for affrighted slaves in the other?”

Alexander Hamilton Quote: “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 Quote: “To judge from the conduct of the opposite parties, we shall be led to conclude that they will mutually hope to evince the justness of their opinions, and to increase the number of their converts by the loudness of their declamations and the bitterness of their invectives.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “And it is long since I have learned to hold popular opinion of no value.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Government implies the power of making laws. It is essential to the idea of a law, that it be attended with a sanction; or, in other words, a penalty or punishment for disobedience.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Common interest may always be reckoned upon as the surest bond of sympathy.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “So numerous indeed and so powerful are the causes which serve to give a false bias to the judgment, that we, upon many occasions, see wise and good men on the wrong as well as on the right side of questions of the first magnitude to society. This circumstance, if duly attended to, would furnish a lesson of moderation to those who are ever so much persuaded of their being in the right in any controversy.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “In a free government, the security for civil rights must be the same as that for religious rights. It consists in the one case in the multiplicity of interests, and in the other in the multiplicity of sects.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Self-preservation is the first principle of our nature.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Best of wives and best of women.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “These powers ought to exist without limitation, because it is impossible to foresee or to define the extent and variety of national exigencies, and the correspondent extent and variety of the means which may be necessary to satisfy them.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “It is far more rational to suppose that the courts were designed to be an intermediate body between the people and the legislature, in order, among other things, to keep the latter within the limits assigned to their authority.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Its objects are CONTRACTS with foreign nations which have the force of law, but derive it from the obligations of good faith.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Tyranny has perhaps oftener grown out of the assumptions of power, called for, on pressing exigencies, by a defective constitution, than out of the full exercise of the largest constitutional authorities.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The truth unquestionably is, that the only path to a subversion of the republican system of the Country is, by flattering the prejudices of the people, and exciting their jealousies and apprehensions, to throw affairs into confusion, and bring on civil commotion.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known and less fixed?”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “To watch the progress of such endeavors is the office of a free press. To give us early alarm and put us on our guard against encroachments of power. This then is a right of utmost importance, one for which, instead of yielding it up, we ought rather to spill our blood.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “By a faction, I understand a number of citizens, whether amounting to a majority or a minority of the whole, who are united and actuated by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, adversed to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent and aggregate interests of the community.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The changes in the human condition are uncertain and frequent. Many, on whom fortune has bestowed her favours, may trace their family to a more unprosperous station; and many who are now in obscurity, may look back upon the affluence and exalted rank of their ancestors.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “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 Quote: “To be more safe, they at length become willing to run the risk of being less free.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Hence, in a state of nature, no man had any moral power to deprive another of his life, limbs, property, or liberty; nor the least authority to command or exact obedience from him, except that which arose from the ties of consanguinity.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “A garden, you know, is a very usual refuge of a disappointed politician. Accordingly, I have purchased a few acres about nine miles from town, have built a house, and am cultivating a garden.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “This process of election affords a moral certainty that the office of President will seldom fall to the lot of any many who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “A LAW, by the very meaning of the term, includes supremacy. It is a rule which those to whom it is prescribed are bound to observe. This results from every political association.”

Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Among the most formidable of the obstacles which the new Constitution will have to encounter may readily be distinguished the obvious interest of a certain class of men in every State to resist all changes which may hazard a diminution of the power, emolument, and consequence of the offices they hold under the State establishments;.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Let us recollect that peace or war will not always be left to our option; that however moderate or unambitious we may be, we cannot count upon the moderation, or hope to extinguish the ambition of others.”

Alexander Hamilton Quote: “When human laws contradict or discountenance the means, which are necessary to preserve the essential rights of any society, they defeat the proper end of all laws, and so become null and void.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Every man the least conversant in Roman story, knows how often that republic was obliged to take refuge in the absolute power of a single man, under the formidable title of Dictator, as well against the intrigues of ambitious individuals who aspired to the tyranny, and the seditions of whole classes of the community whose conduct threatened the existence of all government, as against the invasions of external enemies who menaced the conquest and destruction of Rome.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “It may safely be received as an axiom in our political system, that the state governments will in all possible contingencies afford complete security against invasions of the public liberty by the national authority.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Let experience, the least fallible guide of human opinion, be appealed to for an answer to these inquiries.”
