"The republic was not established by cowards,
and cowards will not preserve it."
"I am commonly opposed to those who modestly assume the rank of champions of liberty, and make a very patriotic noise about the people. It is the stale artifice which has duped the world a thousand times, and yet, though detected, it is still successful. I love liberty as well as anybody. I am proud of it, as the true title of our people to distinction above others; but ... I would guard it by making the laws strong enough to protect it."
"To oppose corruption in government

and they have another right,

without overturning the government."

"A patriot must always be ready to defend
his country against his government."
