Famous quotes containing the word citizens:

    It is a well-settled principle of the international code that where one nation owes another a liquidated debt which it refuses or neglects to pay the aggrieved party may seize on the property belonging to the other, its citizens or subjects, sufficient to pay the debt without giving just cause of war.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    What a country calls its vital economic interests are not the things which enable its citizens to live, but the things which enable it to make war. Petrol is more likely than wheat to be a cause of international conflict.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    In general, the art of government consists in taking as much money as possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other.
    Voltaire [François Marie Arouet] (1694–1778)
