State Quotes



 It is one of the happy incidents of the federal system that a single courageous State may, if its citizens choose, serve as a laboratory; and try novel social and economic experiments without risk to the rest of the country.
{Louis D. Brandeis}
We are gong down the road to stateism. Where we will wind up, no one can tell, but if some of the new programs seriously proposed should be adopted, there is danger that the individual-whether farmer, worker, manufacturer, lawyer, or doctor-will soon be an economic slave pulling an oar in the galley of the state.
{James F. Bymes}
The first act by virtue of which the State really constitutes itself the representative of the whole of society-the taking possession of the means of production in the name of society-the taking possession of the means of production in the name of society-this is, at the same time, its last independent act as a State.
{Friedrich Engels}
A State cannot be expected to move with the celerity of a private business man; it is enough if it proceeds, in the language of the English Chancery, with all deliberate speed.
{Oliver Wendell Holmes}
The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of  the state but rather the conscience of the state.
{Martin Luther King Jr.}
