Famous quotes containing the words government and, government and/or military:

    In the relations of a weak Government and a rebellious people there comes a time when every act of the authorities exasperates the masses, and every refusal to act excites their contempt.
    John Reed (1887–1920)

    But, to speak practically and as a citizen, unlike those who call themselves no-government men, I ask for, not at once no government, but at once a better government. Let every man make known what kind of government would command his respect, and that will be one step toward obtaining it.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Stately as a galleon, I sail across the floor,
    Doing the military two-step, as in the days of yore.
    Joyce Grenfell (1910–1979)
