Famous quotes containing the words native and/or corporations:

    When we see a soul whose acts are all regal, graceful, and pleasant as roses, we must thank God that such things can be and are, and not turn sourly on the angel, and say, “Crump is a better man with his grunting resistance to all his native devils.”
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Mischief springs from the power which the moneyed interest derives from a paper currency which they are able to control, from the multitude of corporations with exclusive privileges ... which are employed altogether for their benefit.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)
