STATES
[ Also see Countries Empire Nation Public Republic ]

The state exists for the sake of a good life, and not for the sake of life only.
      - Aristotle

A very prosperous people, flushed with great victories and successes, are seldom so pious, so humble, so just, or so provident as to perpetuate their happiness.
      - Francis Atterbury

In States, arms and learning have a concurrence or near sequence in time.
      - Francis Bacon

States as great engines move slowly.
      - Francis Bacon

Those who attempt to level never equalize. In all societies consisting of various descriptions of citizens, some descriptions must be uppermost. The levelers, therefore, only change and pervert the natural order of things; they load the edifice of society by setting up in the air what the solidity of the structure requires to be on the ground.
      - Edmund Burke

Whenever government abandons law, it proclaims anarchy.
      - Edmund Burke

A nation to be great ought to be compressed in its increment by nations more civilized than itself.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The state is not abolished, it withers away.
      - Friedrich Engels

Ill fares the State where many masters rule; let one be lord, one king supreme.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios")

Scotland by no means escaped the fate ordained for every country which is connected, but not incorporated, with another country of greater resources.
      - Thomas Babington Macaulay

States that rise quickly, just as all the other things of nature that are born and grow rapidly, cannot have roots and ramifications; the first bad weather kills them.
      - Niccolo Machiavelli (Macchiavelli)

The work of a State in the long run is the work of the individuals composing it.
      - John Stuart Mill

A State would be happy where philosophers were kings, or kings philosophers.
      - Plato (originally Aristocles}

The ruin of a State is generally preceded by an universal degeneracy of manners and contempt of religion.
      - Jonathan Swift

It will be worthy of a free, enlightened, and, at no distant period, a great nation, to give to mankind the magnanimous and too novel example of a people always guided by an exalted justice and benevolence.
      - George Washington

Without a humble imitation of the divine Author of our blessed religion we can never hope to be a happy nation.
      - George Washington
