or Confederation, nor from want of honor or virtue, so much as downright ignorance of the
nature of coin, credit, and circulation.” – John Adams in a letter to Thomas Jefferson

    Daniel Webster had a cool line about Alexander Hamilton that’s engraved on the base of his statute outside the Treasury Building.

    He smote the rock of the national resources and abundant streams of revenue gushed forth. He touched the dead corpse of the public credit and it sprang upon its feet.

    Another oldie but goodie to go with it: “The more things change the more they remain the same,” which is abbreviated as “same-o, same-o.”
