"Our uniqueness makes us special, makes perception valuable - but it can also make us lonely. This loneliness is different from being 'alone': You can be lonely even surrounded by people. The feeling I'm talking about stems from the sense that we can never fully share the truth of who we are. I experienced this acutely at an early age."~ Amy Tan
"Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country." ~F.D.R
"Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives." ~Ronald Reagan
"It's not tyranny we desire; it's a just, limited, federal government." ~Alexander Hamilton
"If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there'd be a shortage of sand." ~Milton Friedman (I do not necessarily share the beliefs of all the people cited, but these are good quotes nonetheless.)
