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: “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: “There is a contagion in example which few men have sufficient force of mind to resist.”
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: “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.”

How can any of you be sure you would have the free enjoyment of your religion long? Would you put your religion in the power of any set of men living? Remember civil and religious liberty always go together: if the foundation of the one be sapped, the other will fail of course.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “That there may happen cases in which the national government may be necessitated to resort to force, cannot be denied.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “It is of the nature of war to increase the executive at the expense of the legislative authority.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Little more can reasonably be aimed at with respect to the people at large than to have them properly armed.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The inquiry constantly is what will please, not what will benefit the people. In such a government there can be nothing but temporary expedient, fickleness, and folly.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “The power of creating new funds upon new objects of taxation, by its own authority, would enable the national government to borrow as far as its necessities might require.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Civil liberty is only natural liberty, modified and secured by the sanctions of civil society.”

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: “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: “The Convention probably foresaw what it has been a principal aim of these papers to inculcate that the danger which most threatens our political welfare is, that the state governments will finally sap the foundations of the Union.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “Safety from external danger is the most powerful director of national conduct.”

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: “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: “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: “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: “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: “Those who have a tolerable knowledge of human nature will not stand in need of such lights.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “I inquired for Mrs. Reynolds and was shewn up stairs, at the head of which she met me and conducted me into a bed room. I took the bill out of my pocket and gave it to her. Some conversation ensued from which it was quickly apparent that other than pecuniary consolation would be acceptable.”
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: “While property continues to be pretty equally divided, and a considerable share of information pervades the community; the tendency of the people’s suffrages, will be to elevate merit even from obscurity. As riches increase and accumulate in few hands; as luxury prevails in society; virtue will be in a greater degree considered as only a graceful appendage of wealth, and the tendency of things will be to depart from the republican standard.”
Alexander Hamilton Quote: “War, like most other things, is a science to be acquired and perfected by diligence, by perserverance, by time, and by practice.”
