Man is the only animal whose desires increase as they are fed; the only animal that is never satisfied.
- Henry George | Homo Sapiens Quotes

- Henry George | Rights Quotes
The man who gives me employment, which I must have or suffer, that man is my master, let me call him what I will.
- Henry George | Slavery Quotes
It is but a truism that labor is most productive where its wages are largest. Poorly paid labor is inefficient labor, the world over.

The ideal social state is not that in which each gets an equal amount of wealth, but in which each gets in proportion to his contribution to the general stock.
- Henry George | Wealth Quotes
