America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.
I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.
All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.
At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.
