Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?
Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.
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 by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.

It often requires more courage to dare to do right than to fear to do wrong.
