„* Ответ Александра Гамильтона на вопрос: Почему создатели Конституции США не упомянули в тексте Бога?“

„Национальный долг в разумных пределах был бы благословением для нашей страны.“

„...в Америке нет добродетели... торгашество, освятившее рождение этих штатов, держит их обитателей на цепи и единственное их желание - чтобы она была золотой.“

„...на свете всегда должны быть дураки, которые жертвуют личными интересами во имя общественных, получая взамен поношения и неблагодарность. И тщеславие нашептывает мне, что я должен быть одним из этих дураков.“

„Men give me credit for some genius. All the genius I have lies in this; when I have a subject in hand, I study it profoundly. Day and night it is before me. My mind becomes pervaded with it. Then the effort that I have made is what people are pleased to call the fruit of genius. It is the fruit of labor and thought.“

„The constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.“

„Give all the power to the many, they will oppress the few. Give all the power to the few, they will oppress the many.“

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

„Those who stand for nothing fall for everything.“ Writings

„The art of reading is to skip judiciously.“

„I never expect a perfect work from an imperfect man.“

„A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one.“

„There are seasons in every country when noise and impudence pass current for worth; and in popular commotions especially, the clamors of interested and factious men are often mistaken for patriotism.“

„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 Divinity itself, and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.“

„Safety from external danger is the most powerful director of national conduct. Even the ardent love of liberty will, after a time, give way to its dictates. The violent destruction of life and property incident to war, the continual effort and alarm attendant on a state of continual danger, will compel nations the most attached to liberty to resort for repose and security to institutions which have a tendency to destroy their civil and political rights. To be more safe, they at length become willing to run the risk of being less free.“ The Federalist Papers
