Quotations for states

States are great engines moving slowly. [ Bacon ]

Ambassadors are the eye and ear of states. [ Guicciardini ]

Great wits and valours, like great states,
Do sometimes sink with their own weights. [ Butler ]

Can pocket states, or fetch or carry kings. (Gold) [ Pope ]

The principal foundation of all states are good laws and good arms. [ Machiavelli ]

Take away the sword; States can be saved without it; bring the pen. [ Edward Bulwer-Lytton ]

States have their conventions and periods as well as natural bodies. [ English Proverb, collected by George Herbert ]

Death is the universal salt of states; Blood is the base of all things - law and war. [ Bailey ]

The union of the states is indissoluble; the country is undivided and indivisible forever. [ David Dudley Field ]

The morbid states of health, the irritableness of disposition arising from unstrung nerves, the impatience, the crossness, the fault-finding of men, who, full of morbid influences, are unhappy themselves, and throw the cloud of their troubles like a dark shadow upon others, teach us what eminent duty there is in health. [ Beecher ]

Founders and senators of states and cities, lawgivers, extirpers of tyrants, fathers of the people, and other eminent persons in civil government, were honored but with titles of worthies or demigods; whereas such as were inventors and authors of new arts, endowments, and commodities towards man's life, were ever consecrated among the gods themselves. [ Bacon ]
