"It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood." —James Madison

"It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest." —Adam Smith

"[T]here is not in all America a more dangerous trait than the deification of mere smartness unaccompanied by any sense of moral responsibility." —Theodore Roosevelt

"No crisis is beyond the capacity of our people to solve; no challenge too great." —Ronald Reagan

"Liberty is not collective, it is personal. All liberty is individual liberty." —Calvin Coolidge

"Some people say it is 'name-calling' if you refer to someone as a liberal. There is nothing inherently negative about the word 'liberal.' If it has acquired negative overtones, that is because of what liberals have done and the consequences that followed." —Thomas Sowell

"[President Bush's] compassionate conservatism [involves] a core faith that not only can the government love you, but it should spend money to prove its love. Beyond that, there seems to be no core set of principles that define Bush's approach." —Jonah Goldberg

"Life is hard and sometimes terrible, and that is a tragedy. It explains much, but it is not a free pass." —Peggy Noonan

"There is no such thing as 'price gouging' by private businesses. The term 'price gouging' implies that gas stations have an ability to forcibly inflict harm on us—but they do not. Any price we pay for a gallon of gasoline—whether $1 or $3—we pay voluntarily, based on the value of the gasoline to us." —Alex Epstein

"If we want to knock down the price of $70+ crude oil, the best place to start would be by expanding our own production, not by running to regulators and government lawyers to investigate spurious charges of price gouging." —Max Schultz

"One of the things that always made me feel good in the morning was waking up and realizing I did not belong to the same political party as Chuck Schumer. It made me feel clean—even before I took a shower." —Tony Blankley
