I like to take my Christmas a little at a time, all through the year. And thus I drift along into the holidays--let them overtake me unexpectedly--waking up some fine morning and suddenly saying to myself: Why this is Christmas Day!

All government, indeed every human benefit and enjoyment, every virtue, and every prudent act, is founded on compromise and barter.

Compromise, among modern statesmen, really seems to mean that half a loaf is better than a whole loaf.

One determined person can make a significant difference, and a small group of determined people can change the course of history.

Four things support the world: the learning of the wise, the justice of the great, the prayers of the good, and the valor of the brave.

Dante once said that the hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in a period of moral crisis maintain their neutrality.

Democracy is the only system that persists in asking the powers that be whether they are the powers that ought to be.
