Stran 98 - ... God give us men! a time like these demands Strong minds, great hearts, true faith, and ready hands; Men whom the lust of office does not kill; Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy; Men who possess opinions and a will; Men who have honor, men who will not lie: Men who can stand before a demagogue, And damn his treacherous flatteries without winking: Tall men, sun crowned, who live above the fog, In public duty and in private thinking...
Stran 93 - You may believe me, my dear Patsy, when I assure you, in the most solemn manner, that, so far from seeking this appointment, I have used every endeavor in my power to avoid it, not only from my unwillingness to part with you and the family, but from a consciousness of its being a trust too great for my capacity...

Stran 256 - Burr will certainly attempt to reform the Government a la Bonaparte. He is as unprincipled and dangerous a man as any country can boast — as true a Catiline as ever met in midnight conclave.
Stran 75 - I should advise persisting in our struggle for liberty, though it were revealed from heaven that nine hundred and ninety-nine were to perish, and only one of a thousand were to survive, and retain his liberty...
Stran 7 - The country was an amazing strong one, full of hills. woods, stone walls, etc., which the Rebels did not fail to take advantage of, for they were all lined with people who kept an incessant fire upon us, as we did too upon them, but not with the same advantage, for they were so concealed there was hardly any seeing them.
Stran 35 - From six i' th' hundred, to six hundred more ? Indulge, and to thy genius freely give ; For, not to live at ease, is not to live. Death stalks behind thee, and each flying hour Does some loose remnant of thy life devour. Live, while thou liv'st ; for death will make us all A name, a nothing but an old wife's tale, Speak, wilt thou Avarice or Pleasure choose To be thy lord ? Take one, and one refuse.
Stran 28 - It is notorious that when this territory was organized not one foot of its soil had ever been sold by the United States, and but a small portion of it (the half-breed tract) was individual property. Were we a community of trespassers, or were we to be regarded rather as occupying and improving the lands of the government by the invitation and for the benefit of the owner?
