I wrote for years before I was ever published, and I don't think I could ever stop.

And having looked to government for bread, on the very first scarcity they will turn and bite the hand that fed them. To avoid that evil, government will redouble the causes of it; and then it will become inveterate and incurable.

Edmund Burke, statesman

The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.

Marcus Tullius Cicero, statesman

Consider Social Security. The young have always contributed to the support of the old. Earlier, the young helped their own parents out of a sense of love and duty.

Milton Friedman, economist

Religion was nearly dead because there was no longer real belief in future life; but something was struggling to take its place -- service -- social service -- the ants creed, the bees creed.

Mothers born on relief have their babies on relief. Nothingness, truly, seems to be the condition of these New York people. They are nomads going from one rooming house to another, looking for a toilet that functions.

Elizabeth Hardwick, critic

If government half a century ago had provided us with all our dinners and breakfasts, it would be the practice of our orators today to assume the impossibility of our providing for ourselves.

Auberon Herbert, writer

The reason welfare is bad is not because it costs too much, nor because it undermines the work ethic, but because it is intrinsically at odds with the way human beings come to live satisfying lives.

Charles Alan Murray,

What a racially segregated system once taught the young black about living with his inferiority is now taught by a benevolent social welfare system. The difference was that in an earlier age a black parent could fight the competing influences.

Charles Alan Murray,

Social Security is a government program with a constituency made up of the old, the near old and those who hope or fear to grow old. After 215 years of trying, we have finally discovered a special interest that includes 100 percent of the population. Now we can vote ourselves rich.

P. J. O'Rourke, comedian

Mystical references to society and its programs to help may warm the hearts of the gullible but what it really means is putting more power in the hands of bureaucrats.

But for the national welfare, it is urgent to realize that the minorities do think, and think about something other than the race problem.

Zora Neale Hurston, dramatist

The best performers in Europe are those who use their welfare states to help people adjust to change.

Meg Whitman, businesswoman

The conventional viewpoint says we need a jobs program and we need to cut welfare. Just the opposite! We need more welfare and fewer jobs.

Jerry Brown, politician

Jobs for every American is doomed to failure because of modern automation and production. We ought to recognize it and create an income-maintenance system so every single American has the dignity and the wherewithal for shelter, basic food, and medical care. I'm talking about welfare for all. Without it, you're going to have warfare for all.

Jerry Brown, politician

We spend billions of pounds on welfare, yet millions are trapped on welfare. It's not worth their while going into work.

David Cameron, politician

But we will say something else. That for far too long in this country, people who can work, people who are able to work, and people who choose not to work: you cannot go on claiming welfare like you are now.

David Cameron, politician

What we're putting forward is the most radical reform of the welfare state... for 60 years. I think it will have a transformative effect in making sure that everyone is better off in work and better off working rather than on benefits.

David Cameron, politician

Without growth we can't pay down our debt, and without growth there's no money for welfare.

Helle Thorning-Schmidt, politician
