Seite 300 - And only the Master shall praise us. and only the Master shall blame: And no one shall work for money. and no one shall work for fame. But each for the joy of the working. and each. in his separate star. Shall draw the Thing as he sees It for the God of Things as They Are!
Seite 412 - In making these recommendations I am fully alive to the responsibility incurred, and keenly realize all the consequences that may follow. I am, nevertheless, firm in my conviction that while it is a grievous thing to contemplate the two great English-speaking peoples of the world as being otherwise than friendly competitors in the onward march of civilization, and strenuous and worthy rivals in all the arts of peace, there is no calamity which a great nation can invite which equals that which follows...
Seite 412 - When such report is made and accepted it will, in my opinion, be the duty of the United States to resist, by every means in its power, as a willful aggression upon its rights and interests, the appropriation by Great Britain of any lands or the exercise of governmental jurisdiction over any territory which, after investigation, we have determined of right belongs to Venezuela.
Seite 412 - Assuming, however, that the attitude of Venezuela will remain unchanged, the dispute has reached such a stage as to make it now incumbent upon the United States to take measures to determine with sufficient certainty for its justification what is the true divisional line between the Republic of Venezuela and British Guiana.

It is not while beauty and youth are...
Seite 716 - The Constitution of the United States, then, forms a Government, not a league ; and whether it be formed by compact between the States, or in any other manner, its character is the same. It is a Government in which all the people are represented, which operates directly on the people individually, not upon the States ; they retained all the power they did not grant.
Seite 716 - To say that any state may at pleasure secede from the Union, is to say that the United States are not a nation...
Seite 409 - They call for a definite decision upon the point whether Great Britain will consent or will decline to submit the Venezuelan boundary question in its entirety to impartial arbitration.
Seite 409 - It being clear, therefore, that the United States may legitimately insist upon the merits of the boundary question being determined, it is equally clear that there is but one feasible mode of determining them — viz., peaceful arbitration. The impracticability of any conventional adjustment has been often and thoroughly demonstrated.
Seite 155 - Observe good faith and justice toward all nations ; cultivate peace and harmony with all; religion and morality enjoin this conduct, and can it be that good policy does not really enjoin it ? It will be worthy of a free, enlightened, and, at no distant period, a 'great nation, to give to mankind the magnanimous and too novel example of a people always guided by an exalted justice and benevolence.
