A Quote by Winthrop Williams Aldrich on action, character, christianity, democracy, economics, freedom, knowledge, laws, people, and time

If we can implant in our people the Christian virtues which we sum up in the word character, and, at the same time, give them a knowledge of the line which should be drawn between voluntary action and governmental compulsion in a democracy, and of what can be accomplished within the stern laws of economics, we will enable them to retain their freedom, and at the same time, make them worthy to be free.

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on democracy, government, time, and world

Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the 'worst' form of Government - except all those others that have been tried from time to time.

A Quote by William Tyler Page on adoption, america, belief, constitution, country, democracy, duty, enemies, equality, fortune, freedom, government, humanity, justice, laws, life, love, nations, people, principles, respect, sacrifice, and support

The American's Creed adopted by the House of Representatives, April 3, 1918 I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect Union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom; equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend if against all enemies.
