Stran 650 - But the right is more precious than peace, and we shall fight for the things which we have always carried nearest our hearts — for democracy, for the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own government...
Stran 650 - To such a task we can dedicate our lives and our fortunes, everything that we are and everything that we have, with the pride of those who know that the day has come when America is privileged to spend her blood and her might for the principles that gave her birth and happiness and the peace which she has treasured. God helping her, she can do no other.
Stran 660 - A free, open-minded and absolutely impartial adjustment of all colonial claims based upon a strict observance of the principle that in determining all such questions of sovereignty the interests of the populations concerned must have equal weight with the equitable claims of the government whose title is to be determined.

Stran 385 - The law locks up the man or woman Who steals the goose from off the common ; But leaves the greater villain loose Who steals the common from the goose.
Stran 338 - Fit retribution ! Gaul may champ the bit, And foam in fetters ; — but is Earth more free ? Did nations combat to make One submit; Or league to teach all kings true sovereignty? What ! shall reviving thraldom again be The patch'd-up idol of enlighten'd days?
Stran 641 - Friendship itself prompts it to say to the Imperial Government that repetition by the commanders of German naval vessels of acts in contravention of those rights must be regarded by the Government of the United States, when they affect American citizens, as deliberately unfriendly.
