Taxes

Famous quotes containing the word taxes:

    As I went about with my father when he collected taxes, I knew that when taxes were laid some one had to work to earn the money to pay them.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)

    Note, besides, that it is no more immoral to directly rob citizens than to slip indirect taxes into the price of goods that they cannot do without.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    ...if I were to be murdered I would not want my murderer executed. I would not want my death avenged. Especially by government—which can’t be trusted to control its own bureaucrats or collect taxes equitably or fill a pothole, much less decide which of its citizens to kill.
    Helen Prejean (b. 1940)
