Famous quotes containing the word state:

    While the State exists there can be no freedom; when there is freedom there will be no State.
    Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (1870–1924)

    If intercourse gives you thrombosis
    And continence causes neurosis,
    I’d rather expire
    Fulfilling desire
    Than live in a state of psychosis.
    Anonymous.

    Me, rule? Me, place the State under my law, when my feeble reason no longer rules even myself!
    Jean Racine (1639–1699)
