  • Real firmness is good for anything; strut is good for nothing.

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

  • A promise must never be broken.

  • Those who do not industrialize become hewers of wood and haulers of water.

  • There is a certain enthusiasm in liberty, That makes human nature rise above itself, in act of bravery and heroism.

  • Learn to think continentally.

  • Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.

  • When the sword is once drawn, the passion of men observe no bounds of moderation.

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

  • We must make the best of those ills which cannot be avoided.

  • Man is reasoning rather than a reasonable, animal.

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

  • I think the first duty of society is justice.

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

  • Power over a man's subsistence amounts to a power over his will.

  • It is of great importance in a republic not only to guard against the oppression of its rules, but to guard one part of society against the injustice of the other part.

  • Even to observe neutrality you must have a strong government.
