"The Income Tax is a vicious, inequitable, unpopular, impolitic and socialist act."
~ New York Times -1894
Authority without wisdom is like a heavy axe without an edge, fitter to bruise than to polish.
- Anne Bradstreet
Man's attitude toward great qualities in others is often the same as toward high mountains - he admires them but he prefers to walk around them.
- Moritz Saphir
"This administration pledged itself last summer to an across-the-board, top-to-bottom cut in personal and corporate income taxes to be enacted and become effective in 1963. I am not talking about a quickie or a temporary tax cut which would be more appropriate if a recession were imminent. Nor am I talking about giving the economy a mere shot in the arm to ease some temporary complaint. The federal government's most useful role is not to rush into a program of excessive increases in public expenditures, but to expand the incentives and opportunities of private expenditures."
~John Fitzgerald Kennedy
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, President Kennedy, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
