Страница 235 - The world must be made safe for democracy. Its peace must be planted upon the tested foundations of political liberty, We have no selfish ends to serve. We desire no conquest, no dominion. We seek no indemnities for ourselves, no material compensation for the sacrifices we shall freely make.
Страница 235 - A steadfast concert for peace can never be maintained except by a partnership of democratic nations. No autocratic government could be trusted to keep faith within it or observe its covenants: It must be a league of honor, a partnership of opinion.
Страница 234 - With a profound sense of the solemn and even tragical character of the step I am taking and of the grave responsibilities which it involves, but in unhesitating obedience to what I deem my constitutional duty, I advise that the Congress declare the recent course of the Imperial German Government to be in fact nothing less than war against the government and people of the United States...
Страница 25 - We love as one, we hate as one, We have one foe and one alone — ENGLAND...
Страница 235 - It must be a league of honor, a partnership of opinion. Intrigue would eat its vitals away ; the plottings of inner circles who could plan what they- would and render account to no one would be a corruption seated at its very heart. Only free peoples can hold their purpose and their honor steady to a common end and prefer the interests of mankind to any narrow interest of their own.
Страница 44 - ... the blood of soldiers only, but the blood of innocent women and children also and of the helpless poor; and now stands balked but not defeated, the enemy of four-fifths of the world. This power is not the German people. It is the ruthless master of the German people.
Страница 43 - Not as weak-willed blunderers have we undertaken the fearful risk of this war. We wanted it. Because we had to wish it, and could wish it. May the Teuton devil throttle those whiners whose pleas for excuses make us ludicrous in these hours of lofty experience. We do not stand, and shall not place ourselves, before the court of Europe.
Страница 25 - We have one foe and one alone. He is known to you all, he is known to you all. He crouches behind the dark gray flood, Full of envy, of rage, of craft, of gall. Cut off by waves that are thicker than blood. Come, let us stand at the Judgment Place, An oath to swear to, face to face, An oath of bronze no wind can shake, An oath for our sons and their sons to take.
Страница 27 - You will we hate with a lasting hate, We will never forego our hate, Hate by water and hate by land, Hate of the head and hate of the hand, Hate of the hammer and hate of the Crown. Hate of the seventy millions choking down. We love as one, we hate as one, We have one foe and one alone: England!
Страница 43 - ... mercy; swept a whole continent within the tide of blood — not the blood of soldiers only, but the blood of innocent women and children also and of the helpless poor; and now stands balked but not defeated, the enemy of fourfifths of the world.
