James Madison Quotes

All men having power ought to be mistrusted.

“In Republics, the great danger is, that the majority may not sufficiently respect the rights of the minority”

“Philosophy is common sense with big words.”

A pure democracy is a society consisting of a small number of citizens, who assemble and administer the government in person.

Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.

If men were angels, no government would be necessary.

Learned Institutions ought to be favorite objects with every free people. They throw that light over the public mind which is the best security against crafty and dangerous encroachments on the public liberty.

Liberty may be endangered by the abuse of liberty, but also by the abuse of power.

Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.

The advancement and diffusion of knowledge is the only guardian of true liberty.

The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe with blood for centuries.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

It is a universal truth that the loss of liberty at home is to be charged to the provisions against danger, real or pretended, from abroad.
