The United States from Republic to Civil War
“America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease
to be great.” ― Alexis de Tocqueville
“That's why they call it the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe
it.” ― George Carlin
“Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended
from immigrants and revolutionists.” ― Franklin D. Roosevelt
“An American is one who will fight for his freedom and that of his neighbor.” – Harold
“Our greatest goodness and our worst impulses come out of this missionary zeal,
contributing to our overbearing (yet not entirely unwarranted) sense of our country as an
inherently helpful force in the world. And, as with the apostle Paul, the notion that
strangers want our help is sometimes a delusion.” ― Sarah Vowell
“the greatest Americans have not been born yet they are waiting patiently for the past to
die” ― Saul Williams
