"There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetrated
under the shield of law and in the name of justice."
"Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honor, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions."
"The evils we experience flow from the excess of democracy.
The people do not want virtue, but are the dupes of pretended patriots."
