James Monroe Quotes

It is only when our rights are invaded or seriously menaced that we resent injuries or make preparation for our defence.
- The Monroe Doctrine


“A little flattery will support a man through great fatigue”

“Our country may be likened to a new house. We lack many things, but we possess the most precious of all -- liberty!”

The best form of government is that which is most likely to prevent the greatest sum of evil.

If we look to the history of other nations, ancient or modern, we find no example of a growth so rapid, so gigantic, of a people so prosperous and happy.

It is only when the people become ignorant and corrupt, when they degenerate into a populace, that they are incapable of exercising their sovereignty.

It is only when our rights are invaded or seriously menaced that we resent injuries or make preparation for our defence.

With a firm reliance on the protection of Almighty God, I shall forwith commence the duties of the high trust to which you have called me.

"If America wants concessions, she must fight for them. We must purchase our power with our blood."
