• “America seeks no earthly empires built on blood and force … The legions which she sends forth are armed, not with the sword, but with the Cross. The higher state to which she seeks the allegiance of all mankind is not of human, but Divine origin. She cherishes no purpose save to merit the favor of Almighty God.” ~Calvin Coolidge, 30th President. Inaugural Address, March 4, 1925

  • “The political mind is the product of men in public life who have been twice spoiled. They have been spoiled with praise and they have been spoiled with abuse. With them nothing is natural, everything is artificial. … They live in an artificial atmosphere of adulation, which sooner or later impairs their judgment.” ~Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933)

  • “Equality is recognized . . . from belief in the brotherhood of man through the fatherhood of God . . . It seems perfectly plain that the right to equality has for its foundation reverence for God. If we could imagine that swept away our American government could not long survive.” ~President Calvin Coolidge (September 21, 1924, in an address to the Holy Name Society in Washington, D.C.)

  • “The Declaration of Independence is a great spiritual document . . . Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man – these are … ideals. They have their source and their roots in the religious convictions. They belong to the unseen world. Unless the faith of the American in these religious convictions is to endure, the principles of our Declaration will perish. We can not continue to enjoy the result if we neglect and abandon the cause.” ~Calvin Coolidge

  • “The history of government on this earth has been almost entirely a history of the rule of force held in the hands of a few. Under our Constitution, America committed itself to . . .the power in the hands of the people . . . Our government rests upon religion. It is from that source that we derive our reverence for truth and justice, for equality and liberty, and for the rights of mankind. Unless the people believe in these principles they cannot believe in our government.” ~Calvin Coolidge

  • “The collection of taxes which are not absolutely required, which do not beyond reasonable doubt contribute to the public welfare, is only a species of legalized larceny. The wise and correct course to follow in taxation is not to destroy those who have already secured success, but to create conditions under which everyone will have a better chance to be successful.” ~Calvin Coolidge (1873-1933)
