Franklin Pierce
Quotations


A Republic without parties is a complete anomaly. The histories of all popular governments show absurd is the idea of their attempting to exist without parties.

Frequently the more trifling the subject, the more animated and protracted the discussion.

I believe that involuntary servitude, as it exists in different States of this Confederacy, is recognized by the Constitution. I believe that it stands like any other admitted right, and that the States where it exists are entitled to efficient remedies to enforce the constitutional provisions.

I wish I could indulge higher hope for the future of our country, but the aspect of any vision is fearfully dark and I cannot make it otherwise.

Remember that time is money.

The stars upon your banner have become nearly threefold their original number; your densely populated possessions skirt the shores of the two great oceans.

We have nothing in our history or position to invite aggression; we have everything to beckon us to the cultivation of relations of peace and amity with all nations.

With the Union my best and dearest earthly hopes are entwined.
