Alexander Hamilton Quote: “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 Quote: “I always feel how necessary you are to me. But when you are absent, I become still more sensible of it and look around in vain for that satisfaction which you alone can bestow.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Civil liberty is only natural liberty, modified and secured by the sanctions of civil society.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “To cherish and stimulate the activity of the human mind, by multiplying the objects of enterprise, is not among the least considerable of the expedients, by which the wealth of a nation may be promoted.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “As on the one hand, the necessity for borrowing in particular emergencies cannot be doubted, so on the other, it is equally evident that to be able to borrow upon good terms, it is essential that the credit of a nation should be well established.”

Alexander Hamilton Quote: “To look for a continuation in harmony between a number of independent unconnected sovereignties, situated in the same neighborhood, would be to disregard the uniform course of human events, and to set at defiance the accumulated experience of ages.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “If we must have an enemy at the head of government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The Courts must declare the sense of the law; and if they should be disposed to exercise will instead of judgement; the consequences would be the substitution of their pleasure for that of the legislative body.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The Achaeans soon experienced, as often happens, that a victorious and powerful ally is but another name for a master.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “It was remarked yesterday that a numerous representation was necessary to obtain the confidence of the people. This is not generally true. The confidence of the people will easily be gained by a good administration. This is the true touchstone.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “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 Quote: “The same rule that teaches the propriety of a partition between the various branches of power, teaches us likewise that this partition ought to be so contrived as to render the one independent of the other.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “If the end be clearly comprehended within any of the specified powers, and if the measure have an obvious relation to that end, and is not forbidden by any particular provision of the Constitution, it may safely be deemed to come within the compass of the national authority.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “This power ought to be coextensive with all the possible combinations of such circumstances; and ought to be under the direction of the same councils which are appointed to preside over the common defense.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “A nation has a right to manage its own concerns as it thinks fit.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “There can be no limitation of that authority which is to provide for the defense and protection of the community in any matter essential to the formation, direction, or support of the NATIONAL FORCES.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “CREDIT supposes specific and permanent funds for the punctual payment of interest, with a moral certainty of a final redemption of the principal.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Of those men who have overturned the liberties of republics, the greatest number have begun their career by paying an obsequious court to the people, commencing demagogues and ending tyrants.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Take mankind as they are, and what are they governed by? Their passions.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The system is the best that the present views and circumstances of the country will permit.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Were it not that it might require too long a discussion, it would not be difficult to demonstrate that a large and well-organized republic can scarcely lose its liberty from any other cause than that of anarchy, to which a contempt of the laws is the high-road.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Nothing is more natural to men in office, than to look with peculiar deference towards that authority to which they owe their official existence.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Complaints are everywhere heard from our most considerate and virtuous citizens, equally the friends of public and private faith, and of public and personal liberty, that our governments are too unstable, that the public good is disregarded in the conflicts of rival parties, and that measures are too often decided, not according to the rules of justice and the rights of the minor party, but by the superior force of an interested and overbearing majority.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “It is just observation that the people commonly intend the Public Good.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The injury which may possibly be done by defeating a few good laws, will be amply compensated by the advantage of preventing a number of bad ones.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The awful discretion, which a court of impeachments must necessarily have, to doom to honor or to infamy the most confidential and the most distinguished characters of the community, forbids the commitment of the trust to a small number of persons.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “It is a singular capriciousness of the human mind, that after all the admonitions we have had from experience on this head, there should still be found men, who object to the new constitution for deviating from a principle which has been found the bane of the old.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The institution of delegated power implies that there is a portion of virtue and honor among mankind which may be a reasonable foundation of confidence.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “If the sword of oppression be permitted to lop off one limb without opposition, reiterated strokes will soon dismember the whole body.”
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. If there be no penalty annexed to disobedience, the resolutions or commands which pretend to be laws will, in fact, amount to nothing more than advice or recommendation.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Happy it is when the interest which the government has in the preservation of its own power, coincides with a proper distribution of the public burthens, and tends to guard the least wealthy part of the community from oppression!”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “It is a general principle of human nature, that a man will be interested in whatever he possesses, in proportion to the firmness or precariousness of the tenure by which he holds it...”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “To answer the purpose of the adversaries of the Constitution, they ought to prove, not merely that particular provisions in it are not the best, which might have been imagined; but that the plan upon the whole is bad and pernicious.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “A republic of this kind, able to withstand an external force, may support itself without any internal corruptions. The form of this society prevents all manner of inconveniences.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The reasonableness of the agency of the national courts in cases in which the state tribunals cannot be supposed to be impartial, speaks for itself. No man ought certainly to be a judge in his own cause, or in any cause in respect to which he has the least interest or bias.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The natural effect of low interest is to increase trade and industry; because undertakings of every kind can be prosecuted with greater advantage.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The idea of restraining the legislative authority, in the means of providing for the national defense, is one of those refinements which owe their origin to a zeal for liberty more ardent than enlightened.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Measures which serve to abridge the free competition of foreign Articles, have a tendency to occasion an enhancement of prices.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “To all general purposes we have uniformly been one people each individual citizen everywhere enjoying the same national rights, privileges, and protection.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Safety from external danger is the most powerful director of national conduct.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The scheme of separate confederacies, which will always multiply the chances of ambition, will be a never failing bait to all such influential characters in the State administrations as are capable of preferring their own emolument and advancement to the public weal.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Men of factious tempers, of local prejudices, or of sinister designs, may, by intrigue, by corruption, or by other means, first obtain the suffrages, and then betray the interests, of the people.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Wherever indeed a right of property is infringed for the general good, if the nature of the case admits of compensation, it ought to be made; but if compensation be impracticable, that impracticability ought to be an obstacle to a clearly essential reform.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Those who have a tolerable knowledge of human nature will not stand in need of such lights.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “They are not rules prescribed by the sovereign to the subject, but agreements between sovereign and sovereign.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “A government, the constitution of which renders it unfit to be trusted with all the powers which a free people ought to delegate to any government, would be an unsafe and improper depositary of the NATIONAL INTERESTS.”
