Alexander Hamilton could fill a few pages of this thread with his quotes. He deserves a lot more attention in our history books.

A few:

"I never expect to see a perfect work from an imperfect man."

"In the general course of human nature, A power over a man's subsistence amounts to a power over his will."

"Learn to think continentally."

"Even to observe neutrality you must have a strong government."

"Constitutions should consist only of general provisions; the reason is that they must necessarily be permanent, and that they cannot calculate for the possible change of things."

"I think the first duty of society is justice."

"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 the divinity itself; and can never be erased."

"Why has government been instituted at all? Because the passions of man will not conform to the dictates of reason and justice without constraint."

"A national debt, if it is not excessive, will be to us a national blessing."

"Men often oppose a thing merely because they have had no agency in planning it, or because it may have been planned by those whom they dislike."

I can see why this movie hasn't been turned into a drinking game.

Everyone would be dead from alcohol poisoning if they had to drink for every tired cliche spotted...

But it was shocking and nearly pornographic for its time.

My darkest moments, my most fearful times, when faced, became my bravest. At your weakest, you end up showing more strength; at your lowest you are suddenly lifted higher than you've ever been. They all border one another, these opposites, and show how quickly we can be altered. ~ Cecelia Ahern
