      - [Politics]

There is no republican road to safety but in constant distrust.
      - [Politics]

There is nothing stronger than human prejudice. A crazy sentimentalism, like that of Peter the Hermit, hurled half of Europe upon Asia, and changed the destinies of kingdoms.

  Yet never let the noble mind despair.
      - [Despair]

To be fossilized is to be stagnant, unprogressive, dead, frozen into a solid. It is only liquid currents of thought that move men and the world.
      - [Ideas]

Truth is one forever absolute, but opinion is truth filtered through the moods, the blood, the disposition of the spectator.
      - [Opinion]

Wants awaken intellect. To gratify them disciplines intellect. The keener the want the lustier the growth.
      - [Want]

War and Niagara thunder to a music of their own.
      - [War]

We live under a government of men and morning newspapers.
      - [Journalism]

We measure genius by quality, not by quantity.
      - [Genius]

What gunpowder did for war, the printing-press has done for the mind; and the statesman is no longer clad in the steel of special education, but every reading man is his judge.
      - [Press]

What is defeat? Nothing but education, nothing but the first step to something better.
      - [Defeat]

What is fanaticism today is the fashionable creed tomorrow, and trite as the multiplication table a week after.
      - [Fanaticism]

When Marmontel was regretting the excesses of the period, Chamfort asked: "Do you think that revolutions are made with rose-water?"
      - [Revolution]

Whether in chains or in laurels, liberty knows nothing but victories.
      - [Liberty]

With us law is nothing unless close behind it stands a warm, living public opinion.
      - [Opinion]

Take the whole range of imaginative literature, and we are all wholesale borrowers. In every matter that relates to invention, to use, or beauty or form, we are borrowers.

Revolutions never go backward.
