“…That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall most like to effect their safety and happiness.”
“The secret of happiness is freedom. The secret of freedom is courage.”
In a democracy the poor will have more power than the rich, because there are more of them, and the will of the majority is supreme.
“There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.”
“… government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
