Alexander Hamilton: Inconstant

“An individual who is observed to be inconstant to his plans, or perhaps to carry on his affairs without any plan at all, is marked at once. By all prudent people, as a speedy victim to his own unsteadiness and folly.”
β€’ Alexander Hamilton.

Alexander Hamilton: Tyranny and deformity

β€œIt has been observed that a pure democracy if it were practicable would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved that no position is more false than this. The ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny, their figure deformity.”

—Alexander Hamilton.
