If I am killed, I can die but once; but to live in constant dread of it, is to die over and over again.
I’m a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn’t have the heart to let him down.
I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.
I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to what light I have.
Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally.
