Subsistence Quotations

The power of population is indefinitely greater than the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man.
Thomas Malthus

Power over a man's subsistence is power over his will.
Alexander Hamilton

The constant effort towards population, which is found even in the most vicious societies, increases the number of people before the means of subsistence are increased.
Thomas Malthus

Real prosperity comes from everybody in the country working together in a growth mode. Real prosperity comes as a result of people's own initiative and efforts and so forth. Prosperity, if it comes from the government, is not prosperity. It's an existence or a subsistence or whatever, but it isn't prosperity.
Rush Limbaugh

Man tends to increase at a greater rate than his means of subsistence.
Charles Darwin
