God has been pleased to prescribe limits to his power and to work out his ends within these limits.
What is public history but a register of the successes and disappointments, the vices, the follies and the quarrels of those who engage in contention for power.
What we are doing is satisfying the American public. That’s our job. I always say we have to give most of the people what they want most of the time. That’s what they expect from us.
In what way can a revelation be made but by miracles? In none which we are able to conceive.
