Famous quotes containing the words government and/or local:

    [In government] the problem to be solved is, not what form of government is perfect, but which of the forms is least imperfect.
    James Madison (1751–1836)

    While it may not heighten our sympathy, wit widens our horizons by its flashes, revealing remote hidden affiliations and drawing laughter from far afield; humor, in contrast, strikes up fellow feeling, and though it does not leap so much across time and space, enriches our insight into the universal in familiar things, lending it a local habitation and a name.
    —Marie Collins Swabey. Comic Laughter, ch. 5, Yale University Press (1961)
