“While we give praise to God, the supreme disposer of all events, for His interposition on our behalf, let us guard against the dangerous error of trusting in, or boasting of, an arm of flesh….
If your case is just, if your principals are pure, and if your conduct is prudent, you need not fear the multitude of opposing host.”

"A Republic must either preserve its virtue or lose its liberty...."

“God grant that in America true religion and civil liberty may be inseparable and that the unjust attempts to destroy the one, may in the issue tend to the support and establishment of both."
