„Had I been present at the Creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better ordering of the universe.“

—  Alfonso X of Castile King of Castile 1221 - 1284
After studying Ptolemy's treatise on astronomy.; reported in Thomas Carlyle, History of Frederick the Great, book ii. chap. vii. Carlyle wrote that this saying of Alfonso about Ptolemy's astronomy, "that it seemed a crank machine; that it was pity the Creator had not taken advice," is still remembered by mankind, — this and no other of his many sayings. If the Lord Almighty had consulted me before embarking on creation thus, I should have recommended something simpler.

„It is in order that each of you may have through this free government“

—  Abraham Lincoln 16th President of the United States 1809 - 1865
Context: It is in order that each of you may have through this free government which we have enjoyed, an open field and a fair chance for your industry, enterprise and intelligence; that you may all have equal privileges in the race of life, with all its desirable human aspirations. It is for this the struggle should be maintained, that we may not lose our birthright — not only for one, but for two or three years. The nation is worth fighting for, to secure such an inestimable jewel.

„Yes, anarchy is order, government is civil war.“

—  Anselme Bellegarrigue French anarchist 1813
Bellegarrigue is often credited with first using the slogan "Anarchy is order, government is civil war" in 1848; it may have been derived from Pierre-Joseph Proudhon's expression, in What is Property? An Inquiry into the Principle of Right and of Government (1840): "As man seeks justice in equality, so society seeks order in anarchy."<!-- ** Also quoted in Anarchism: A History of Libertarian Ideas and Movements (1962) by George Woodcock, p. 276 -->
