From One of the Greats on President's Day

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."

"Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties."

"Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves."

"The people will save their government, if the government itself will allow them."

"I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice."

"Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?"

"In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."

"Marriage is neither heaven nor hell, it is simply purgatory."

"With the fearful strain that is on me night and day, if I did not laugh I should die"

"Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right."

"I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life."
