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.

Other quotes by 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.

Learn to think continentally.

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

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

Nobody expects to trust his body overmuch after the age of fifty.
