State Quotes

For some, state is an ancient institution that traces its roots to ancient Rome and Greece while for most others, the conception of state is a fairly modern one, with its widespread rule of law, citizenship rights, and panoptic economic and social responsibilities adding to its special features. To sum it up in a single line, a state is a sovereign entity that has a territory, is inhabited by a group of people, has external recognition and is administered by a government. For a better understanding of the concept of state, check out the famous state quotes.
