All men desire to be immortal.
      - [Immortality]

All men need something to poetize and idealize their life a little--something which they value for more than its use, and which is a symbol of their emancipation from the mere materialism and drudgery of daily life.

First there is the democratic idea: that all men are endowed by their creator with certain natural rights; that these rights are alienable only by the possessor thereof; that they are equal in men; that government is to organize these natural, unalienable and equal rights into institutions designed for the good of the governed, and therefore government is to be of all the people, by all the people, and for all the people. Here government is development, not exploitation.
      - in a speech in Boston [Government]

In this country every one gets a mouthful of education, but scarcely any one a full meal.

Intellect is stronger than cannon.
