Text Quotes
Compare society to a boat. Her progress through the water will not depend upon the exertion of her crew, but upon the exertion devoted to propelling her. This will be lessened by any expenditure of force in fighting among themselves, or in pulling in different directions  (Henry George Quotes) That which is unjust can really profit no one; that which is just can really harm no one  (Henry George Quotes) The man who gives me employment, which I must have or suffer, that man is my master, let me call him what I will  (Henry George Quotes) The equal right of all men to the use of land is as clear as their equal right to breathe the air it is a right proclaimed by the fact of their existence. For we cannot suppose that some men have a right to be in this world, and others no right  (Henry George Quotes) There are people into whose heads it never enters to conceive of any better state of society than that which now exists  (Henry George Quotes) Trade has ever been the extinguisher of war, the eradicator of prejudice, the diffuser of knowledge  (Henry George Quotes) Man is the only animal whose desires increase as they are fed; the only animal that is never satisfied  (Henry George Quotes) I do not think that any sorrow of youth or manhood equalled in intensity or duration the black and hopeless misery which followed the wrench of transference from a happy home to a school  (Henry George Quotes) A good, very good, not to say admirable schoolmaster, but then he is only a schoolmaster  (Henry George Quotes) How vainly shall we endeavor to repress crime by our barbarous punishment of the poorer class of criminals so long as children are reared in the brutalizing influences of poverty, so long as the bite of want drives men to crime  (Henry George Quotes) Discovery can give no right of ownership, for whatever is discovered must have been already here to be discovered. If a man makes a wheelbarrow, or a book, or a picture, he has a moral right to that particular wheelbarrow, or book, or picture, but no right to ask that others be prevented from making similar things. Such a prohibition, though given for the purpose of stimulating discovery and invention, really in the long run operates as a check upon them  (Henry George Quotes) For every social wrong there must be a remedy. But the remedy can be nothing less than the abolition of the wrong  (Henry George Quotes) No person, I think, ever saw a herd of buffalo, of which a few were fat and the great majority lean. No person ever saw a flock of birds, of which two or three were swimming in grease, and the others all skin and bone  (Henry George Quotes) It is not the business of government to make men virtuous or religious, or to preserve the fool from the consequences of his own folly. Government should be repressive no further than is necessary to secure liberty by protecting the equal rights of each from aggression on the part of others, and the moment governmental prohibitions extend beyond this line they are in danger of defeating the very ends they are intended to serve  (Henry George Quotes) The march of invention has clothed mankind with powers of which a century ago the boldest imagination could not have dreamt  (Henry George Quotes) Poverty is the openmouthed relentless hell which yawns beneath civilized society. And it is hell enough  (Henry George Quotes) Whence shall come the new barbarians? Go through the squalid quarters of great cities, and you may see, even now, their gathering hordes! How shall learning perish? Men will cease to read, and books will kindle fires and be turned into cartridges  (Henry George Quotes) What protectionism teaches us, is to do to ourselves in time of peace what enemies seek to do to us in time of war  (Henry George Quotes) Let no man imagine that he has no influence. Whoever he may be, and wherever he may be placed, the man who thinks becomes a light and a power  (Henry George Quotes)
