### Famous quotes containing the word points:

“The men who carry their *points* do not need to inquire of their constituents what they should say, but are themselves the country which they represent: nowhere are its emotions or opinions so instant and so true as in them; nowhere so pure from a selfish infusion.”

—Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

“Wonderful “Force of Public Opinion!” We must act and walk in all *points* as it prescribes; follow the traffic it bids us, realise the sum of money, the degree of “influence” it expects of us, or we shall be lightly esteemed; certain mouthfuls of articulate wind will be blown at us, and this what mortal courage can front?”

—Thomas Carlyle (1795–1881)

“The two great *points* of difference between a democracy and a republic are: first, the delegation of the government, in the latter, to a small number of citizens elected by the rest; secondly, the greater number of citizens and greater sphere of country over which the latter may be extended.”

—James Madison (1751–1836)
