„What can any individual do? Of that, every individual can judge. There is one thing that every individual can do, — they can see to it that they feel right.“

—  Harriet Beecher Stowe, buch Uncle Tom's Cabin

An atmosphere of sympathetic influence encircles every human being; and the man or woman who feels strongly, healthily and justly, on the great interests of humanity, is a constant benefactor to the human race. See, then, to your sympathies in this matter! Are they in harmony with the sympathies of Christ? or are they swayed and perverted by the sophistries of worldly policy?

„John Marshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it!“

—  Andrew Jackson American general and politician, 7th president of the United States 1767 - 1845

As quoted in The American Conflict (1865) by Horace Greely, as a reaction to the Supreme Court ruling in Worcester v. Georgia (1832); reported as a misattribution in Paul F. Boller, Jr., and John George, They Never Said It: A Book of Fake Quotes, Misquotes, & Misleading Attributions (1989), p. 53, noting that historian Robert V. Remini believes Jackson did not make this statement, though it summarizes his attitude, as evidenced in a statement similar in nature made in a letter to John Coffee: "the decision of the Supreme Court has fell still born, and they find that they cannot coerce Georgia to yield to its mandate."

„Human believe what they want to believe and individual could believe according to his mind that why human never has any agreement on one ideology.“
