Favorite Public Servants Quotes

1. "We call ourselves public servants but I'll tell you this: we as public servants must set an example for the rest of the nation. It is hypocritical for the public official to admonish and exhort the people to uphold the common good."
Author: Barbara Jordan
2. "One obvious palliative of the evils of democracy in its present form would be to encourage much more publicity and initiative on the part of civil servants.

Author: Bertrand Russell
3. "I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe . . . Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence, I must confess that I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing. Make them intelligent, and they will be vigilant; give them the means of detecting the wrong, and they will apply the remedy."
Author: Daniel Webster

Author: Glenn Beck
6. "Public officers are the servants and agents of the people, to execute the laws which the people have made."
Author: Grover Cleveland

10. "He wanted me to understand two big things: First, that nobody, no group, is above others. Public servants are obliged to level with everybody, whether or not they'll like what he has to say. And second, that politics was a matter of personal honor. A man's word is his bond. You give your word, you keep it. For as long as I can remember, I've had a sort of romantic notion of what politics should be- and can be. If you do politics the right way, I believe, you can actually make people's lives better. And integrity is the minimum ante to get into the game. Nearly forty years after I first got involved, I remain captivated by the possibilities of politics and public service. In fact, I believe- as I know my grandpop did- that my chosen profession is a noble calling."
Author: Joe Biden
11. "Americans have learned to trust free markets. Republican or Democrat, we believe the unimpeded exchange of goods and services will yield better solutions than five-year plans set by even the most well-meaning public servants."
Author: John Katzman

Author: Mortimer Zuckerman
14. "It's incumbent on good public servants to maintain their voices and originality of thinking."
Author: Ronan Farrow
15. "Teachers are our greatest public servants; they spend their lives educating our young people and shaping our Nation for tomorrow."
Author: Solomon Ortiz
16. "Our country is too large to have all its affairs directed by a single government. Public servants at such a distance, and from under the eye of their constituents, must, from the circumstance of distance, be unable to administer and overlook all the details necessary for the good government of the citizens; and the same circumstance, by rendering detection impossible to their constituents, will invite public agents to corruption, plunder and waste."
Author: Thomas Jefferson
17. "How, Yusef wondered, can two men joke like that and tomorrow be enemies. Perhaps they'd been enemies yesterday. He decided public servants weren't human."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
