HENRY GEORGE
American social reformer and political economist
(1839 - 1897)

How can a man be said to have a country when he has not right of a square inch of it.
      - [Citizenship]

Poorly paid labor is inefficient labor, the world over.
      - [Wages]

Passing into higher forms of desire, that which slumbered in the plant, and fitfully stirred in the beast, awakes in the man.
      - Progress and Poverty (bk. II, ch. 3)
        [Desire]   BUY VARYING HARE USED BOOK  

For as labor cannot produce without the use of land, the denial of the equal right to the use of land is necessarily the denial of the labor to its own produce.
      - Progress and Poverty (bk. VII, ch. I)
        [Labor]   BUY VARYING HARE USED BOOK  

The equal right of all men to the use of land is as clear as their equal right to breathe the air--it is a right proclaimed by the fact of their existence. For we cannot suppose that some men have a right to be in this world, and others no right.
      - Progress and Poverty (bk. VII, ch. I)
        [Rights]   BUY VARYING HARE USED BOOK  

So long as all the increased wealth which modern progress brings, goes but to build up great fortunes, to increase luxury, and make sharper the contest between the House of Have and the House of Want, progress is not real and cannot be permanent.
      - Progress and Poverty
         (Introductory--The Problem) [Progress]   BUY VARYING HARE USED BOOK  

For every social wrong there must be a remedy. But the remedy can be nothing less than the abolition of the wrong.
      - Social Problems (ch. IX) [Society]

The man who gives me employment, which I must have or suffer, that man is my master, let me call him what I will.
      - Social Problems (ch. V) [Slavery]

The ideal social state is not that in which each gets an equal amount of wealth, but in which each gets in proportion to his contribution to the general stock.
      - Social Problems (ch. VI) [Wealth]

That which is unjust can really profit no one; that which is just can really harm no one.
      - The Land Question (ch. XIV) [Justice]
