Wisdom Of The Day: Alexander Hamilton


In republics, persons elevated from the mass of the community by the suffrages of their fellow-citizens to stations of great pre-eminence and power may find compensations for betraying their trust, which, to any but minds actuated by superior virtue may appear to exceed the proportion of interest they have in the common stock, and to overbalance the obligations of duty. ~ Alexander Hamilton, FEDERALIST PAPER #22, On Corruption
