“When thievery is resorted to for the means with which to do
good, compassion is killed. Those who would do good with the loot then lose
their capacity for self-reliance, the same as a thief's self-reliance atrophies
rapidly when he subsists on food that is stolen. And those who are repeatedly
robbed of their property simultaneously lose their capacity for compassion.” - F.A. Harper, Essays on Liberty 
“You say: ‘There are persons who have no money,’ and you turn to
the law. But the law is not a breast that fills itself with milk. Nor are the
lacteal veins of the law supplied with milk from a source outside the society.
Nothing can enter the public treasury for the benefit of one citizen or one
class unless other citizens and other classes have been forced to send it in.
If every person draws from the treasury the amount that he has put in it, it is
true that the law then plunders nobody. But this procedure does nothing for the
persons who have no money. It does not promote equality of income. The law can
be an instrument of equalization only as it takes from some persons and gives
to other persons. When the law does this, it is an instrument of plunder.” - Frederic Bastiat (1801 - 1850)
“If you lose all respect for the rights of others, and with it
your own self-respect; if you lose your own sense of right and fairness; if you
lose your belief in liberty, and with it the sense of your own worth and truth;
if you lose your own will and self-guidance and control over your own lives and
actions, ...what can all the gifts of politicians give you in return?”
“In the end you will gain far more by clinging faithfully to the
methods of peace and respect for the rights of others than by allowing
yourselves to use the force that always calls out force in reply...” - Auberon Herbert

"He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppresion; for if he violates this duty he estabalishes a precedent that will reach to himself." -Thomas Paine, Common Sense 1776
