I don't know who my grandfather was; I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.
We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.
I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.
I do the very best I know how - the very best I can; and I mean to keep on doing so until the end.
