Stand with anybody that stands right. Stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.
      - Abraham Lincoln

This country with its institutions belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.
      - Abraham Lincoln, in his first inaugural

With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right.
      - Abraham Lincoln, Second Inaugural Address

Might was the measure of right.
  [Lat., Mensuraque juris
    Vis erat.]
      - Lucanus (Marcus Annaeus Lucan), Pharsalia
         (I, 175)

Of all "rights" which command attention at the present time among us, woman's rights seem to take precedence.
      - Horace Mann

People don't ever seem to realize that doing what's right is no guarantee against misfortune.
      - William McFee

So I like life and I like righteousness; if I cannot keep the two together, I will let life go and choose righteousness.
      - Mencius

It infuriates me to be wrong when I know I'm right.
      - Moliere (pseudonym of Jean Baptiste Poquelin)

Women would rather be right than reasonable.
      - Ogden Nash

Woman already controls by not seeming to do so. Talk no more of her rights.
      - Ouida (pseudonym of Marie Louise de la Ramee)

I believe in the admission of women to the full rights of citizenship and share in government, on the express grounds that few women keep house so badly or with such wastefulness as chancellors of the exchequer keep the state.
      - Theodore Parker

Right is right, even if everyone is against it; and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it.
      - William Penn

Right is the eternal sun; the world cannot delay its coming.
      - Wendell Phillips

Right thoughts produce right actions and right actions produce work which will be a material reflection for others to see of the serenity at the center of it all.
      - Robert M. Pirsig

All Nature is but art unknown to thee;
  All chance direction, which thou canst not see;
    All discord, harmony not understood;
      All partial evil, universal good;
        And spite of pride, in erring reason's spite,
          One truth is clear, Whatever is is right.
      - Alexander Pope, Essay on Man
         (ep. I, l. 289)

If the heart be right, it matters not which way the head lies.
      - Sir Walter Raleigh (1)

We hear in these days a great deal respecting rights--the rights of private judgment, the rights of labor, the rights of property, and the rights of man. Rights are grand things, divine things in this world of God's; but the way in which we expound these rights, alas! seems to me to be the very incarnation of selfishness. I can see nothing very noble in a man who is forever going about calling for his own rights. Alas! alas! for the man who feels nothing more grand in this wondrous, divine world than his own rights.
      - Frederick William Robertson

I hope to leave my children a sense of empathy and pity and a will to right social wrongs.
      - Anita Roddick

Aggressive fighting for the right is the noblest sport the world affords.
      - Theodore Roosevelt

In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.
      - Theodore Roosevelt

The proof of a thing's being right is that it has power over the heart; that it excites us, wins us, or helps us.
      - John Ruskin

Hooking both right and wrong to the appetite, to follow as it draws.
      - William Shakespeare

My specialty is being right when other people are wrong.
      - George Bernard Shaw

No man has a right to do what he pleases, except when he pleases to do right.
      - Charles Simmons (2)

If on one day we find the fast-spreading recognition of popular rights accompanied by a silent, growing perception of the rights of women, we also find it accompanied by a tendency towards a system of non-coercive education--that is, towards a practical illustration of the rights of children.
      - Herbert Spencer
