Protection is not a principle but an expedient.

Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881) British politician and author.

We rail at trade, but the historian of the world will see that it was the principle of liberty; that it settled America, and destroyed feudalism, and made peace and keeps peace; that it will abolish slavery.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) U.S. poet, essayist and lecturer.

The greatest meliorator of the world is selfish, huckstering Trade.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) U.S. poet, essayist and lecturer.

Merchants have no country. The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains.

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