3Labor disgraces no man; unfortunately, you occasionally find men who disgrace labor.
4I appreciate the fact, and am proud of it, that the attentions I am receiving are intended more for our country than for me personally.
5There never was a time when, in my opinion, some way could not be found to prevent the drawing of the sword.
6Everyone has his superstitions. One of mine has always been when I started to go anywhere, accomplished.
7I know no method to secure the repeal of bad or obnoxious laws so effective as their stringent execution.

9In every battle there comes a time when both sides consider themselves beaten, then he who continues the attack wins.
10I have never advocated war except as a means of peace.
11The friend in my adversity I shall always cherish most. I can better trust those who helped to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity.
12The art of war is simple enough. Find out where your enemy is. Get at him as soon as you can. Strike him as hard as you can, and keep moving on.

16Nations, like individuals, are punished for their transgressions.
17Leave the matter of religion to the family altar, the church, and the private school, supported entirely by private contributions. Keep the church and state forever separate.

19Hold fast to the Bible. To the influence of this Book we are indebted for all the progress made in true civilization and to this we must look as our guide in the future.
20If you see the President, tell him from me that whatever happens there will be no turning back.
21I propose to fight it out on this line if it takes all summer.
22If men make war in slavish obedience to rules, they will fail.
