—  Bernard Baruch, As quoted in his obituary, New York Times (21 June 1965)

—  Robert A. Heinlein American science fiction author 1907 - 1988
Context: At the time I wrote Methuselah’s Children I was still politically quite naive and still had hopes that various libertarian notions could be put over by political processes… It [now] seems to me that every time we manage to establish one freedom, they take another one away. Maybe two. And that seems to me characteristic of a society as it gets older, and more crowded, and higher taxes, and more laws. I would say that my position is not too far from that of Ayn Rand's; that I would like to see government reduced to no more than internal police and courts, external armed forces — with the other matters handled otherwise. I'm sick of the way government sticks its nose in everything, now. The Robert Heinlein Interview, and other Heinleiniana (1973) by J. Neil Schulman (published in 1990)
