"If the legislature clearly misinterprets a constitutional provision, the frequent repetition of the wrong will not create a right."
"Economic necessity cannot justify a disregard of cardinal constitutional guarantee."
"If all the bank loans were paid, no one could have a bank deposit,
and there would not be a dollar of coin or currency in circulation.
This is a staggering thought. We are completely dependent on the
commercial Banks. Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in
circulation, cash or credit. If the Banks create ample synthetic money
we are prosperous; if not, we starve. We are absolutely without a
permanent money system. When one gets a complete grasp of the picture,
the tragic absurdity of our hopeless position is almost incredible, but
there it is. It is the most important subject intelligent persons can
investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present
civilization may collapse unless it becomes widely understood and the
defects remedied very soon."

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
"Only a debt-backed system of paper money could finance the great wars, the social improvements and the fevered dreams of the 20th century."
"Those who swallow down usury cannot arise except as one whom Satan has prostrated by his touch does rise. That is because they say, trading is only like usury; and Allah has allowed trading and forbidden usury. To whomsoever then the admonition has come from his Lord, then he desists, he shall have what is already passed, and his affairs are in the hands of Allah; and whoever returns to it - these are the inmates of the fire; they shall abide in it..."

"When you run in debt; you give to another power over your liberty."
"With the exception only of the period of the gold standard,
practically all governments of history have used their exclusive
power to issue money to defraud and plunder the people."
"A power has risen up in the government greater than the people
themselves, consisting of many and various powerful interests,
combined in one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of
the vast surplus in banks."

"Are we going to take the hands of the federal government completely off any effort to adjust the growing of national crops, and go right straight back to the old principle that every farmer is a lord of his own farm and can do anything he wants, raise anything, any old time, in any quantity, and sell any time he wants?"
"An individual should not have too much freedom.
A nation should have absolute freedom."
"The maxim, that governments ought to train the people in the way
in which they should go, sounds well. But is there any reason for
believing that a government is more likely to lead the people in the
right way than the people to fall into the right way of themselves?"
