Σελίδα 460 - I entreat my dear children, if they, or any of them, should ever be able, to make up the deficiency. I, without hesitation, commit to their delicacy a wish which is dictated by my own. — Though conscious that I have too far sacrificed the interests of my family to public avocations, and on this account have the less claim to burthen my children, yet I trust in their magnanimity to appreciate as they ought, this my request.
Σελίδα 76 - In every relation which you have borne to me, I have found that my confidence in your talents, exertions, and integrity, has been well placed. I' the more freely render this testimony of my approbation, because I speak from opportunities of information which cannot deceive me, and which furnish satisfactory proof of your title to public regard.

Σελίδα 415 - Nothing is more fallacious than to expect to produce any valuable or permanent results in political projects, by relying merely on the reason of men. Men are rather reasoning than reasonable animals — for the most part governed by the impulse of passion.
Σελίδα 272 - Any thing beyond this must fall under the idea of reprisals, and requires the sanction of that department which is to declare or make war. In so delicate a case, in one which involves so important a consequence as that of war, my opinion is, that no doubtful authority ought to be exercised by the President...
Σελίδα ix - ... the effect of your continuing, in reference to the declarations you have made of your .disinclination to public life.
