"We hold these truths to be sacred and undeniable, that all men are
created equal and independent, that from that equal creation they
derive rights inherent and inalienable, among which are the preservation
of life, and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
"Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it."
"The Republican form of government
is the highest form of government;
but because of this it requires
the highest type of human nature --
a type nowhere at present existing."
