Worthless

Government is the only institution that can take a valuable commodity like paper, and make it worthless by applying ink.
     — Ludwig von Mises

Value is not intrinsic

Value is not intrinsic, it is not in things. It is within us; it is the way in which man reacts to the conditions of his environment. Neither is value in words and doctrines, it is reflected in human conduct. It is not what a man or groups of men say about value that counts, but how they act.
     — Ludwig von Mises

Laissez faire

If one rejects laissez faire on account of man's fallibility and moral weakness, one must for the same reason also reject every kind of government action.
     — Ludwig von Mises
