Famous quotes containing the words government and/or british:

    In using the strong hand, as now compelled to do, the government has a difficult duty to perform. At the very best, it will by turns do both too little and too much. It can properly have no motive of revenge, no purpose to punish merely for punishment’s sake. While we must, by all available means, prevent the overthrow of the government, we should avoid planting and cultivating too many thorns in the bosom of society.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    Absolute monarchy,... is the easiest death, the true Euthanasia of the BRITISH constitution.

    David Hume (1711–1776)
