and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth
The principle of free governments adheres to the American soil. It is bedded in it, immovable as its mountains
Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair
We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among those rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
We have a great dream. It started way back in 1776, and God grant that America will be true to her dream.
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty
This is a new nation, based on a mighty continent, of boundless possibilities
Whatever America hopes to bring to pass in the world must first come to pass in the heart of America
For this is what America is all about. It is the uncrossed desert and the unclimbed ridge. It is the star that is not reached and he harvest sleeping in the unplowed ground. Is our world gone? We say 'Farewell.' Is a new world coming? We welcome it - and we will bend it to the hopes of man.
May God continue the unity of our country as the railroad unites the two great oceans of the world
Indian tribe: Thanksgiving address
We send thanks to all the Animal life in the world. They have many things to teach us as people. We are glad they are still here and we hope it will always be so
The cause of freedom is not the cause of a race or a sec, a party or a class - it is the cause of humankind, the very birthright of humanity
Every generation has the obligation to free men's minds for a look at new worlds … to look out from a higher plateau than the last generation
