- "Great men are almost always bad men."
- “There is no worse heresy than that the office sanctifies the holder of it.”
- “The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections.”
- "Every thing secret degenerates, even the administration of justice; nothing is safe that does not show how it can bear discussion and publicity."
- "The danger is not that a particular class is unfit to govern. Every class is unfit to govern."
- "There is no error so monstrous that it fails to find defenders among the ablest men."
Sic Hacer Pace, Para Bellum.
