Justice, sir, is the great interest of man on earth.
      - On Mr. Justice Story [Justice]

Might his last glance behold the glorious ensign of the Republic still full high advanced, its arms and trophies streaming in all their original lustre.
      - Peroration of the replay to Hayne [Flags]

When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of human civilization.
      - Remarks on Agriculture (p. 457)

I thank God that if I am gifted with little of the spirit which is said to be able to raise mortals to the skies, I have yet none, as I trust, of that other spirit, which would drag angels down.
      - Second Speech on Foot's Resolution

The people's government made for the people, made by the people, and answerable to the people.
      - Second Speech on Foot's Resolution

When my eyes shall be turned to behold, for the last time, the sun in heaven, may I not see him shining on the broken and dishonored fragments of a once glorious Union; on States dissevered, discordant, belligerent; on a land rent with civil feuds, or drenched, it may be, in fraternal blood!

Liberty and Union, now and forever, one and inseparable.
      - Second Speech on Foote's Resolution

Labor in this country is independent and proud. It has not to ask the patronage of capital, but capital solicits the aid of labor.

One Country, one Constitution, one Destiny.
      - Speech [Unity]

Liberty exists in proportion to wholesome restraint.
      - Speech at the Charleston Bar Dinner

If we work upon marble it will perish. If we work upon brass time will efface it. If we rear temples they will crumble to dust. But if we work upon men's immortal minds, if we imbue them with high principles, with the just fear of God and love of their fellow men, we engrave on those tablets something which no time can efface, and which will brighten and brighten to all eternity.
      - Speech in Faneuil Hall [Monuments]

He touched the dead corpse of Public Credit, and it sprung upon its feet.
      - Speech on Hamilton [Government]

He smote the rock of the national resources, and abundant streams of revenue gushed forth. He touched the dead corpse of Public Credit, and it sprung upon its feet.

They went to war against a preamble, they fought seven years against a declaration.
      - Speech on the Presidential Protest [War]

A power which has dotted over the surface of the whole globe with her possessions and military posts, whose morning drum-beat, following the sun, and keeping company with the hours, circles the earth with one continuous and unbroken strain of the martial airs of England.
      - Speech--The Presidential Protest

On the light of Liberty you saw arise the light of Peace, like
  "another morn,"
    "Risen on mid-noon;"
      and the sky on which you closed your eye was cloudless.
      - Speeches, The Bunker Hill Monument

We have been taught to regard a representative of the people as a sentinel on the watch-tower of liberty.
