"Friends and fellow citizens: I stand before you tonight under indictment for the alleged crime of having voted at the last presidential election, without having a lawful right to vote. It shall be my work this evening to prove to you that in thus voting, I not only committed no crime, but, instead, simply exercised my citizen's rights, guaranteed to me and all United States citizens by the National Constitution, beyond the power of any state to deny" [ler mais]

"Não confio em pessoas que sabem muito bem o que Deus deseja que eles façam porque percebo que isto sempre coincide com seus próprios desejos." [Susan B. Anthony]
