Congress quotes

G. W. F. Hegel
The Few assume to be the deputies, but they are often only the despoilers of the Many.

Daniel Webster
This is a Senate of equals, of men of individual honor and personal character, and of absolute independence. We know no masters, we acknowledge no dictators. This is a hall for mutual consultation and discussion not an arena for the exhibition of champions.

Barber B. Conable Jr.
Congress is functioning the way the Founding Fathers intendednot very well. They understood that if you move too quickly, our democracy will be less responsible to the majority.

Mark Twain
It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly American criminal class except Congress.

Henry David Thoreau
If we were left solely to the wordy wit of legislators in Congress for our guidance, uncorrected by the seasonal experience and the effectual complaints of the people, America would not long retain her rank among the nations.

William J. Brennan Jr.
Congress acknowledged that society's accumulated myths and fears about disability and disease are as handicapping as are the physical limitations that flow from actual impairment.

J. William Fulbright
We have the power to do any da** fool thing we want to do, and we seem to do it about every ten minutes.

Mark Twain
Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of congress but I repeat myself.
