Famous Quotes Concerning U.S. Government and Democracy:

Chief Justice JOHN MARSHALL (1755 - 1835) said, "The people make the Constitution, and the people can unmake it.   It is the creature of their own will, and lives only by their will."


President WOODROW WILSON (1856 - 1924) wrote, "Government should not be made an end in itself: it is a means only - a means to be freely adapted to advance the best interests of social organism.    The state exists for the sake of society, not society for the sake of the state."

President JOHN F. KENNEDY (1917 - 1963) stated, "Democracy is a difficult kind of government.   It requires the highest qualities of self-discipline, restraint, a willingness to make commitments and sacrifices for the general interest, and also it requires knowledge."

President JIMMY CARTER (1924 - ) said, "But we know that democracy is always an unfinished creation.   Each generation must renew its foundations."
