A national debt, if it is not excessive, will be to us a national blessing. 
Alexander Hamilton 

A promise must never be broken. 
Alexander Hamilton 

A well adjusted person is one who makes the same mistake twice without getting nervous. 
Alexander Hamilton 

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 

Even to observe neutrality you must have a strong government. 
Alexander Hamilton 

Here, sir, the people govern; here they act by their immediate representatives. 
Alexander Hamilton

Alexander Hamilton 

In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men the great difficulty lies in this: You must first enable the government to control the governed, and in the next place, oblige it to control itself. 
Alexander Hamilton 

In politics, as in religion, it is equally absurd to aim at making proselytes by fire and sword. Heresies in either can rarely be cured by persecution. 
Alexander Hamilton 

In the general course of human nature, A power over a man's subsistence amounts to a power over his will. 
Alexander Hamilton 

In the main it will be found that a power over a man's support (salary) is a power over his will. 
Alexander Hamilton 

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

Alexander Hamilton 

It's not tyranny we desire; it's a just, limited, federal government. 
Alexander Hamilton 

Learn to think continentally. 
Alexander Hamilton 

Man is a reasoning rather than a reasonable animal. 
Alexander Hamilton 

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

Alexander Hamilton 

Power over a man's subsistence is power over his will. 
Alexander Hamilton 

Real firmness is good for anything; strut is good for nothing. 
Alexander Hamilton 

The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased. 
Alexander Hamilton 

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 

There is a certain enthusiasm in liberty, that makes human nature rise above itself, in acts of bravery and heroism. 
Alexander Hamilton 

Those who stand for nothing fall for anything. 
Alexander Hamilton 

When the sword is once drawn, the passions of men observe no bounds of moderation. 
Alexander Hamilton 

Why has government been instituted at all? Because the passions of man will not conform to the dictates of reason and justice without constraint. 
Alexander Hamilton

Alexander Hamilton
