Citizen Duties Quotes

But it still remains, as it was in the beginning, the common enemy of all well-disposed, industrious and decent men.

— H.L. Mencken

He taught me that it is possible to live instead pretty much in the manner of a private citizen without losing any of the dignity and authority a ruler must possess to discharge his imperial duties effectively.

— Marcus Aurelius

Citizens ... should be practitioners of civic virtue in their conduct toward government. They should be ever willing to fulfill the duties of citizenship. This includes compulsory duties like military service and the numerous voluntary actions they must take if they are to preserve the principle of limited government through citizen self-reliance.

— Dallin H. Oaks
