Famous quotes containing the words legislative and/or branch:

    The legislative powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, ... thus building a wall of separation between Church and State.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    In communist society, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch he wishes, society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticize after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, shepherd or critic.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)
