    Some more good one's.
    The policy of the American government is to leave their citizens free, neither restraining nor aiding them in their pursuits.

    He who knows nothing is closer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.

    I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

    The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

    History, in general, only informs us what bad government is.

    Makes you wonder why and how Democrats could ever oppose the end of Slavery as put forth by Lincoln or oppose many of the civil rights put forth by Republicans throughout the 20th Century.
