A Quote by unknown on citizenship, constitution, crime, honesty, needs, privacy, reason, and time

No private citizen has any reason or need at any time to possess a gun. This applies to both honest citizens and criminals. We realize the Constitution guarantees the "right to keep and bear arms" but this should be changed.

A Quote by Thomas Moore on affection, citizenship, and nature

From thence the beasts be brought in, killed and clean washed by the hands of their bondsmen. For they permit not their free citizens to accustom themselves to the killing of beasts, through the use whereof they think clemency, the gentlest affection of our nature, by little and little to decay and perish.

A Quote by Thomas Jefferson on ability, acting, anxiety, character, citizenship, concern, difficulty, duty, honesty, individuality, information, interest, knowledge, men, motives, necessity, time, and understanding

Of the various executive abilities, no one excited more anxious concern than that of placing the interests of our fellow-citizens in the hands of honest men, with understanding sufficient for their stations. No duty is at the same time more difficult to fulfil. The knowledge of character possessed by a single individual is of necessity limited. To seek out the best through the whole Union, we must resort to the information which from the best of men, acting disinterestedly and with the purest motives, is sometimes incorrect.

The object of government is the welfare of the people. The material progress and prosperity of a nation are desirable chiefly so far as they lead to the moral and material welfare of all good citizens.
