Seite 26 - De lui-même le peuple veut toujours le bien, mais de lui-même il ne le voit pas toujours. La volonté générale est toujours droite, mais le jugement qui la guide n'est pas toujours éclairé.
Seite 26 - ... des volontés particulières, rapprocher à ses yeux les lieux et les temps, balancer l'attrait des avantages présents et sensibles, par le danger des maux éloignés et cachés.
Seite 14 - It presented itself to us from the the necessity of the situation we were in ; dreaded at first as an evil by many good men in our own country, as well as by our friends in Europe ; and it is at this day far from being understood, or properly appreciated, by the generality of those who admire it. Our practice upon it, as far as we have gone, and the vast regions of our continent that present themselves to its embrace, must convince the world that it is the greatest improvement on the mechanism of...
Seite 26 - Les particuliers voient le bien qu'ils rejettent : le public veut le bien qu'il ne voit pas. Tous ont également besoin de guides. Il faut obliger les uns à conformer leurs volontés à leur raison ; il faut apprendre à l'autre à connaître ce qu'il veut.
Seite 85 - ... Mais' à mesure que l'industrie augmente les richesses , elle augmente aussi le goût de l'opulence : l'amour de l'argent étant l'ouvrage de l'imagination , et non du sentiment, on ne s'en rassasie point, on se dégoûte des objets des passions naturelles : il n'est point d'habitude qui se fortifie plus par l'usage que celle d'amasser de l'argent.

It was the result of circumstances which no man could foresee, and no •writer pretended to contemplate. It presented itself to us from the necessity of the situation we were in ; dreaded at first as an evil by many good men in our own country, as well as by our friends in Europe ; and it is at this day far from...
Seite 14 - ... of politics, at the head of armies, which they cannot live without, are telling us that ' no new principle of government has been discovered for these two thousand years'' ; and that all proposals to ameliorate the system are vain abstractions, unworthy of a sound philosophy. They may tell us too that no new principle in mechanics had been discovered since we came to the knowledge...
Seite 15 - ... no new principle of government has been discovered for these two thousand years' 1 ; and that all proposals to ameliorate the system are vain abstractions, unworthy of a sound philosophy. They may tell us too that no new principle in mechanics had been discovered since we came to the knowledge of the lever ; no new principle in war, since we first found that a man would cease to fight the moment he was killed. Yet we see in the two latter cases that new combinations of principle have been discovered...
Seite 14 - ... embrace, must convince the world that it is the greatest improvement on the mechanism of government that has ever been discovered, the most consoling to the friends of liberty, humanity, and peace. Men who have grown old in the intrigues of cabinets, and those who, in the frensy of youthful ambition, present themselves on the theatre of politics, at the head of armies, which they cannot live without, are telling us that ' no new principle of government has been discovered for these two thousand...
Seite 70 - Considérés comme vivant dans une société qui doit être maintenue, ils ont des lois dans le rapport qu'ont ceux qui gouvernent avec ceux qui sont gouvernés: et c'est le DROIT POLITIQUE.
