Let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges. Let it be written in primers, spelling books, and in almanacs. Let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in the courts of justice. And, in short, let it become the political religion of the nation.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/22659/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/22659/ <![CDATA[Don't worry when you are not recognized, but strive to be worthy of recognition.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/42498/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/42498/ <![CDATA[I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere to go. My own wisdom, and that of all about me, seemed insufficient for the day.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/6516/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/6516/ <![CDATA[It is the eternal struggle between these two principles -- right and wrong. They are the two principles that have stood face to face from the beginning of time and will ever continue to struggle.

It is not adherence to the old and tried, but against the new and untried?]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/8163/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/8163/ <![CDATA[I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money-power of the country will endeavor to prolong it's reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/9222/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/9222/ <![CDATA[I think very much of the people, as an old friend said he thought of woman. He said when he lost his first wife, who had been a great help to him in his business, he thought he was ruinedthat he could never find another to fill her place. At length, however, he married another, who he found did quite as well as the first, and that his opinion now was that any woman would do well who was well done by. So I think of the whole people of this nationthey will ever do well if well done by. We will try to do well by them in all parts of the country, North and South, with entire confidence that all will be well with all of us.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/45480/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/45480/ <![CDATA[The legitimate object of government, is to do for a community of people, whatever they need to have done, but can not do, at all, or can not, so well do, for themselvesin their separate, and individual capacities. In all that the people can individually do as well for themselves, government ought not to interfere. The desirable things which the individuals of a people can not do, or can not well do, for themselves, fall into two classes: those which have relation to wrongs, and those which have not. Each of these branch off into an infinite variety of subdivisions. The firstthat in relation to wrongsembraces all crimes, misdemeanors, and nonperformance of contracts. The other embraces all which, in its nature, and without wrong, requires combined action, as public roads and highways, public schools, charities, pauperism, orphanage, estates of the deceased, and the machinery of government itself. From this it appears that if all men were just, there still would be some, though not so much, need for government.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/45475/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/45475/ <![CDATA[Must a government, of necessity, be too strong for the liberties of its own people, or too weak to maintain its own existence?]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/45441/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/45441/ <![CDATA[There is an important sense in which government is distinctive from administration.
