Founding Fathers Quotes
An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to destroy; because there is a limit beyond which no institution and
no property can bear taxation.
John Marshall, McCullough v. Maryland, 1819
Is not marriage an open question, when it is alleged, from the beginning of the world, that such as are in the institution
wish to get out, and such as are out wish to get in? -- Ralph Emerson
How can a president not be an actor?
Be wise as thou art cruel; do not press
My tongue-tied patience with too much disdain;
Lest sorrow lend me words, and words express
The manner of my pity-wanting pain.
If I might teach thee wit, better it were,
Though not to love, yet, love to tell me so;--
As testy sick men, when their deaths be near,
No news but health from their physicians know;--
For, if I should despair, I should grow mad,
And in my madness might speak ill of thee;
Now this ill-wresting world is grown so bad,
Mad slanderers by mad ears believed be.
That I may not be so, nor thou belied,
Bear thine eyes straight, though thy proud heart go wide.
