Famine, unjust taxation, unemployment, persecution by local authorities, and so on, frequently lead to a dull hatred for the existing social, moral and religious order, which the simple- minded peasant takes to be the direct cause of his misfortunes.- "Modern Saints and Seers", Jean Finot.
While the duties on this small portion, representing only about 12 per cent of our imports, undoubtedly represent the difference between a fair degree of prosperity or marked depression to many of our industries and the difference between good pay and steady work or wide unemployment to many of our wage earners, it is impossible to conceive how other countries or our own importers could be greatly benefited if these duties are reduced.- "State of the Union Addresses of Calvin Coolidge", Calvin Coolidge.
