UNION
[ Also see Anarchy Cooperation Faction Friendship Meeting Peace Sects Solidarity Unity ]

This glorious union shall not perish! Precious legacy of our fathers, it shall go down honored and cherished to our children. Generations unborn shall enjoy its privileges as we have done; and if we leave them poor in all besides, we will transmit to them the boundless wealth of its blessings!
      - Edward Everett

The union of the states is indissoluble; the country is undivided and indivisible forever.
      - David Dudley Field

The force of union conquers all.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios")

Two souls with but a single thought,
  Two hearts that beat as one.
      - Marie Anne Lacy Lovell,
        Ingomar the Barbarian,
        popular translation of lines from Bellinghausen's play, "Der Sohn der Wildniss"

The advice nearest to my heart and deepest in my convictions is that the union of the states be cherished and perpetuated. Let the open enemy to it be regarded as a Pandora with her box opened, and the disguised one as the serpent creeping with his deadly wiles into paradise.
      - James Madison

Our national constitution shall prevail; 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.
      - George Brinton McClellan

If this bill passes . . . as it will be the right of all, so it will be the duty of some, to prepare definitely for a separation, amicably if they can, violently if they must.
      - Josiah Quincy (2),
        in a speech in Congress against the admission of Louisiana to the Union

Union does every thing when it is perfect; it satisfies desires, it simplifies needs, it foresees the wishes of the imagination; it is an aisle always open, and becomes a constant fortune.
      - Etiene Pivert de Senancour

It is to that union we owe our safety at home, and our consideration and dignity abroad. It is to that union that we are chiefly indebted for whatever makes us most proud of our country. That union we reached only by the discipline of our virtues in the severe school of adversity. It had its origin in the necessities of its disordered finance, prostrate commerce, and ruined credit. Under its benign influences these great interests immediately awoke, as from the dead, and sprang forth with newness of life. Every year of its duration has teemed with fresh fruits of its utility and its blessings; and although our territory has stretched out wider and wider, and our population spread farther and farther, they have not outrun its protection or its benefits. It has been to us all a copious fountain of national, social, and personal happiness.
      - Daniel Webster
