A Quote by Theodore Parker on democracy, eternity, freedom, god, government, ideas, justice, laws, people, and principles

A democracy,- that is a government of all the people, by all the people, for all the people; of course, a government of the principles of eternal justice, the unchanging law of God; for shortness' sake I will call it the idea of Freedom.

A Quote by Theodore Parker on achievement, army, bravery, duty, home, justice, mankind, schools, skill, strength, victory, welfare, and world

Let us do our duty in our shop or our kitchen, in the market, the street, the office, the school, the home, just as faithfully as if we stood in the front rank of some great battle, and knew that victory for mankind depended on our bravery, strength, and skill. When we do that, the humblest of us will be serving in that great army which achieves the welfare of the world.
