"It is one thing to be subordinate to the laws, and another [for the Executive] to be dependent on the legislative body. The first comports with, the last violates, the fundamental principles
of good government; and, whatever may be the forms of the Constitution, unites all power in the same hands." --Alexander Hamilton (Federalist No. 71, 18 March 1788), Reference: The Federalist

"It is a duty certainly to give our sparings to those who want; but to see also that they are faithfully distributed, and duly apportioned to the respective wants of those receivers. And why give through agents whom we know not, to persons whom we know not, and in countries from which we get no account, where we can do it at short hand, to objects under our eye, through agents we know, and to supply wants we see?" --Thomas Jefferson (letter to Michael Megear, 29 May 1823), Reference: Jeffersonian Cyclopedia, Foley, ed. (134); original The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, Washington, ed., vol. 7 (286)
