Halaman 380 - But the right is more precious than peace, and we shall fight for the things which we have always carried nearest our hearts, for democracy, for the right of those •who submit to authority to have a voice in their own governments...
Halaman 36 - I want to take this occasion to say that the United States will never again seek one additional foot of territory by conquest. She will devote herself to showing that she knows how to make honorable and fruitful use of the territory she has, and she must regard it as one of the duties of friendship to see that from no quarter are material interests made superior to human liberty and national opportunity.
Halaman 375 - I hope, so far as they can equitably be sustained by the present generation, by well conceived taxation. I say sustained so far as may be equitable by taxation because it seems to me that it would be most unwise to base the credits which will now be necessary entirely on money borrowed.

Halaman 55 - President shall prescribe any arms or munitions of war from any place in the United States to such country until otherwise ordered by the President or by Congress.
Halaman 251 - In the meantime the very value which this Government sets upon the long and unbroken friendship between the people and Government of the United States and the people and Government of the German nation impels it to press very solemnly upon the Imperial German Government the necessity for a scrupulous observance of neutral rights in this critical matter. Friendship itself prompts it to say to the Imperial Government that repetition by the commanders of German naval vessels of acts in contravention...
Halaman 370 - GENTLEMEN OF THE CONGRESS, — I have called the Congress into extraordinary session because there are serious, very serious, choices of policy to be made, and made immediately, which it was neither right nor constitutionally permissible that I should assume the responsibility of making.
