A Quote by Charles Alexis Henri Clérel de Tocqueville on christianity, companions, conflict, divinity, and liberty

Christianity is the companion of liberty in all its conflicts, the cradle of its infancy, and the divine source of its claims.

A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on companions, country, and horses

I have not permitted myself, gentlemen, to conclude that I am the best man in the country; but I am reminded, in this connection, of a story of an old Dutch farmer who remarked to a companion once that "it was not best to swap horses while crossing streams."

Abraham Lincoln (1809 - 1865)
