http://www.mikalac.com/civ/main60.html "It is harder to preserve than to obtain liberty. " "All we ask is to be let alone." "It is well that war is so terrible. We should grow too fond of it." "Get there first with the most." "I have too great a soul to die like a criminal. " "I did not write it. God wrote it. I merely did his dictation." "From the beginning of our history the country has been afflicted with compromise. It is by compromise that human rights have been abandoned. " "There are only two sides to this question. Every man must be for the United States or against it. There can be no neutrals in this war; only patriots and traitors." "America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." "The Union, which can alone insure internal peace, and external security to each State, Must and Shall be Preserved, cost what it may in time, treasure, and blood." "I have never advocated war except as a means of peace." "War is cruelty. There is no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is the sooner it will be over." "I am sworn to uphold the Constitution as Andy Johnson understands it and interprets it." "Come here immediately and see if you can find the murderer of the President." "The future condition of the conquered power depends on the will of the conquerer." "The Constitution of the United States was made not merely for the generation that then existed, but for posterity- unlimited, undefined, endless, perpetual posterity." "Soon after the war began the reign of the mob was... supplanted by the iron domination of arbitrary power. Constitutional limitation was broken down; habeas corpus fell; liberty of the press, of speech, of the person, of the mails, of travel, of one’s own house, and of religion; the right to bear arms, due process of law, judicial trial, trial by jury, trial at all; every badge and muniment of freedom in republican government or kingly government--all went down at a blow..." "I find that the prejudice in this country to color is very great, and I sometimes fear that it is on the increase. For example, let me remark that it matters not how colored people act, it matters not how they behave themselves, how well they deport themselves, how intelligent they may be, how refined they may be—for there are some colored persons who are persons of refinement; this must be admitted—the prejudice against them is equally as great as it is against the most low and degraded man you can find in the streets of this city or in any other place." "I may sometimes be willing to teach for nothing, but if paid at all, I shall never do a man's work for less than a man's pay." "The people's government, made for the people, made by the people, and answerable to the people."
