• Government is like fire. If it is kept within bounds and under the control of the people, it contributes to the welfare of all. But if it gets out of place, if it gets too big and out of control, it destroys the happiness and even the lives of the people.

    Harold Edward Stassen (1951). “Man was Meant to be Free: Selected Statements, 1940-1951”, Garden City, N.Y. : Doubleday
