The things that will destroy America are prosperity at any price, peace at any price, safety first instead of duty first and love of soft living and the get-rich-quick theory of life.
Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of the government. The history of government is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is the history of the limitation of government, not the increase of it.
Educate and inform the whole mass of the people...they are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.
The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear.
The heart of a fool is in his mouth, but the mouth of a wise man is in his heart.
If someone puts their hands on you make sure they never put their hands on anybody else again.
The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive.
No government can be long secure without a formidable opposition.
When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.
I fight on. I fight to win.

Liberty does not exist in the absence of morality.
Capital is dead labor, which, vampire-like, lives only by sucking living labor, and lives the more, the more labor it sucks.
Democracy... while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.
