Quotations

"Never take counsel of your fears. "
 
"Heaven will be no heaven to me if I do not meet my wife there. "
 
"Peace, above all things, is to be desired, but blood must sometimes be spilled to obtain it on equable and lasting terms. "
 
"There are no necessary evils in government. Its evils exist only in its abuses. "
 
"As long as our government is administered for the good of the people, and is regulated by their will; as long as it secures to us the rights of persons and of property, liberty of conscience and of the press, it will be worth defending. "
