A mortal wound is a very severe injury (almost always a form of penetration or laceration) whether accidental or inflicted intentionally (by either suicide or homicide), which leads directly to the death of the victim. Death need not be instantaneous, but follows soon after. If proper medical treatment is provided immediately, the victim has a chance of survival, at which point the wound retroactively becomes non-mortal. However, even with prompt medical intervention, there is still a strong likelihood that the victim will not survive. Source: Wikipedia

Aaron Burr killed Alexander Hamilton on July 11, 1804

At dawn on July 11, 1804, Burr, Hamilton, and their seconds met on the heights of Weehawken, New Jersey to resolve their growing rancor and animosity by fighting a duel, a not uncommon practice at that time. The tradition was not to administer a fatal wound to your opponent, but that practice was often followed in the breach. Burr fatally wounded Hamilton, who died the next day.

This is a mortal wound Alexander Hamilton quotes

A national debt, if it is not excessive, will be to us a national blessing.

A promise must never be broken.

A well adjusted person is one who makes the same mistake twice without getting nervous.

Constitutions should consist only of general provisions; the reason is that they must necessarily be permanent, and that they cannot calculate for the possible change of things.

This is a Mortal Wound Quote Alexander Hamilton Aaron Burr

Even to observe neutrality you must have a strong government.

Here, sir, the people govern; here they act by their immediate representatives.

I never expect to see a perfect work from an imperfect man.

I think the first duty of society is justice.

In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men the great difficulty lies in this: You must first enable the government to control the governed, and in the next place, oblige it to control itself.

In politics, as in religion, it is equally absurd to aim at making proselytes by fire and sword. Heresies in either can rarely be cured by persecution.

In the general course of human nature, A power over a man's subsistence amounts to a power over his will.

In the main it will be found that a power over a man's support (salary) is a power over his will.

In the usual progress of things, the necessities of a nation in every stage of its existence will be found at least equal to its resources.

It is the advertiser who provides the paper for the subscriber. It is not to be disputed, that the publisher of a newspaper in this country, without a very exhaustive advertising support, would receive less reward for his labor than the humblest mechanic.

It's not tyranny we desire; it's a just, limited, federal government.

Learn to think continentally.

Man is a reasoning rather than a reasonable animal.

Men often oppose a thing merely because they have had no agency in planning it, or because it may have been planned by those whom they dislike.

Nobody expects to trust his body overmuch after the age of fifty.

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