Famous quotes containing the words legislative and/or assembly:
“Freedom of men under government is to have a standing rule to live by, common to every one of that society, and made by the legislative power vested in it; a liberty to follow my own will in all things, when the rule prescribes not, and not to be subject to the inconstant, unknown, arbitrary will of another man.”
—John Locke (16321704)
“Had every Athenian citizen been a Socrates, every Athenian assembly would still have been a mob.”
