Daniel Webster Quotes


I was born an American; I will live an American; I shall die an American

There is always room at the top

One country, one constitution, one destiny.

Liberty and Union, now and forever, one and inseparable

It is my living sentiment, and by the blessing of God it shall be my dying sentiment, independence now and independence forever.

A country cannot subsist well without liberty, nor liberty without virtue.

An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, the power to destroy.

Failure is more frequently from want of energy than want of capital

God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it.

Keep cool; anger is not an argument

Let it be borne on the flag under which we rally in every exigency, that we have one country, one constitution, one destiny

Let us not forget that the cultivation of the earth is the most important labor of man. When tillage begins, other arts will follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of civilization

Man is a special being, and if left to himself, in an isolated condition, would be one of the weakest creatures; but associated with his kind, he works wonders.

Mind is the great lever of all things; human thought is the process by which human ends are ultimately answered

No man not inspired can make a good speech without preparation

The contest for ages has been to rescue liberty from the grasp of executive power

The law: it has honored us; may we honor it

The materials of wealth are in the earth, in the seas, and in their natural and unaided productions.

The people's government, made for the people, made by the people, and answerable to the people.

The world is governed more by appearance than realities so that it is fully as necessary to seem to know something as to know it.

There is nothing so powerful as truth, and often nothing so strange

We are all agents of the same supreme power, the people

We have been taught to regard a representative of the people as a sentinel on the watch-tower of liberty.

What a man does for others, not what they do for him, gives him immortality.

Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens

When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of human civilization.

Wisdom begins at the end
