Stran 30 - ... to secure the existence of the body politic, to protect it, and to furnish the individuals, who compose it, with the power of enjoying, in safety and tranquillity, their natural rights, and the blessings of life : and whenever these great objects are not obtained, the people have a right to alter the government, and to take measures, necessary for their safety, prosperity, and happiness.
Stran 589 - In vain thy reason finer webs shall draw, Entangle Justice in her net of law, And right, too rigid, harden into wrong; Still for the strong too weak, the weak too strong.
Stran 670 - Tender-handed stroke a nettle, And it stings you for your pains ; Grasp it like a man of mettle, And it soft as silk remains.

Soldiers, policemen, and gaolers ; swords, batons, and fetters, are instruments for inflicting pain; and all infliction of pain is in the abstract wrong. The state employs evil weapons to subjugate evil, and is alike contaminated by the objects with which it deals, and the means by which it works.
Stran 211 - ... no thief, burglar, incendiary or assassin, shall escape punishment, either by the quibbles of the law, the insecurity of prisons, the carelessness or corruption of the police, or a laxity of those who pretend to administer justice.
Stran 680 - Kick away, old fellow. I'll be in hell with you in a minute. Every man for his principles. Hurrah for Jeff Davis. Let her rip.
Stran 151 - A rush, a struggle, and the Mexican, bound hand and foot, lay on his back in the bar-room. The camp turned out to a man. Happily such cries as " String him up ! " "Burn the doggoned ' lubricator ! ' " and other equally pleasant phrases fell unheeded upon his Spanish ear.
