Tuesday’s Quotes – July 11, 2017 – Hamilton

“The republican principle demands that the deliberate sense of the community should govern the conduct of those to whom they intrust the management of their affairs; but it does not require an unqualified complaisance to every sudden breeze of passion or to every transient impulse which the people may receive from the arts of men, who flatter their prejudices to betray their interests.”   — Alexander Hamilton

On this day in 1804, Alexander Hamilton, our first Treasury Secretary, was killed in a duel by Aaron Burr, at the time Vice-President of the United States.
