Republican

The republican is the only form of government which is not eternally at open or secret war with the rights of mankind.

Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) Third president of the United States.

The Republican form of government is the highest form of government; but because of this it requires the highest type of human nature -- a type nowhere at present existing.

Herbert Spencer (1820-1903) English philosopher, biologist and sociologist.

Grant me thirty years of equal division of inheritances and a free press, and I will provide you with a republic.

Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1889) French social philosopher.

Yes, I am a thorough republican. No other form of government is so favorable to the growth of art.

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) Irish poet and dramatist.

We all have the republican spirit in our veins, like syphilis in our bones. We are democratized and venerealized.

Charles Baudelaire (1821-1867) French poet.

The king-times are fast finishing. There will be blood shed like water, and tears like mist; but the peoples will conquer in the end. I shall not live to see it, but I foresee it.

Lord Byron (1788-1824) British poet.
