- Are right and wrong convertible terms, dependent upon popular opinion? permalink
- I will be as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not wish to think, or speak, or write, with moderation. No! no! Tell a man whose house is on fire, to give a moderate alarm; tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hand of the ravisher; tell the mother to gradually extricate her babe from the fire into which it has fallen; but urge me not to use moderation in a cause like the present. I am in earnest - I will not equivocate - I will not excuse - I will not retreat a single inch - and I will be heard. permalink
- That which is not just is not law. permalink
- The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from its pedestal and hasten the resurrection of the dead. permalink
