The country life is to be preferred, for there we see the works of God, but in cities little else but the works of men.

A Quote by William McKinley on country, hope, inspiration, men, and poverty

I do not prize the word 'cheap.' It is not a word of hope, nor a word of cheer. It is not a word of inspiration. It is the badge of poverty. The signal of distress. Cheep merchandise means cheap men, cheap men means a cheap country.

A Quote by William Ellery Channing on country, freedom, peace, sentimentality, speech, and war

The cry has been that when war is declared, all opposition should therefore be hushed. A sentiment more unworthy of a free country could hardly be propagated. If the doctrine be admitted, rulers have only to declare war and they are screened at once from scrutiny. . . . In war, then, as in peace, assert the freedom of speech and of the press. Cling to this as the bulwark of all our rights and privileges.

William Ellery Channing (1780 - 1842)
