17 psl. - We all declare for liberty ; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor ; while with others the same word may mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men's labor. Here are two, not only different, but incompatible things, called by the same name, liberty.

They have enabled a greater population to live the same life of drudgery and imprisonment, and an increased number of manufacturers and others to make fortunes. They have increased the comforts of the middle classes. But they have not yet begun to effect those great changes in human destiny, which it is in their nature and in their futurity to accomplish.
33 psl. - A learned American judge found three great instruments in human history the Ten Commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, and the Declaration of American Independence. This was perhaps no more than a flash of obiter dictum, and undoubtedly the bench exposed surface to a telling cross-examination. Yet after all Mount Sinai, the Mount in Galilee, and State-House Yard in Philadelphia hold commanding stations in the courses of the sun.
14 psl. - For he that shall well consider the errors and obscurity, the mistakes and confusion, that are spread in the world by an ill use of words, will find some reason to doubt whether language, as it has been employed, has contributed more to the improvement or hindrance of knowledge amongst mankind.
