Daniel Webster
Where is it written in the Constitution that you may take children from their parents, and parents from their children, and compel them to fight the battles of any war in which the folly or wickedness of government may engage it?
The world is governed more by appearances than realities, so that it is fully as necessary to seem to know something as to know it.
An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, the power to destroy.
Failure is more frequently from want of energy than want of capital.
There is nothing so powerful as truth, and often nothing so strange.
It is my living sentiment, and by the blessing of God it shall be my dying sentiment, independence now and independence forever.
Wisdom begins at the end.
Justice, sir, is the great interest of man on earth. It is the ligament which holds civilized beings and civilized nations together.
