Thomas Paine quote

Thomas Paine: "When it shall be said in any country in the world, my poor are happy; neither ignorance nor distress is to be found among them; my jails are empty of prisoners, my streets of beggars; the aged are not in want, the taxes are not oppressive...; when these things can be said, then may that country boast of its constitution and its government."

Original: Thomas Paine
