Not only do I pray for it, on the score of human dignity, but I can clearly forsee that nothing but the rooting out of slavery can perpetuate the existence of our union, by consolidating it in a common bond of principle.


George Washington

1st President of the United States; commander-in-chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolution (1732-1799)

    Ich bete nicht nur dafür, was die Menschenwürde angeht, sondern ich kann auch klar vorhersehen, dass nichts anderes als das Herauswurzeln der Sklaverei die Existenz unserer Vereinigung verewigen kann, indem sie in einem gemeinsamen Grundsatzverbund gefestigt wird.

    मैं न केवल मानवीय गरिमा के आधार पर इसके लिए प्रार्थना करता हूं, बल्कि मैं स्पष्ट रूप से यह देख सकता हूं कि गुलामी को खत्म करने के अलावा और कुछ भी हमारे संघ के अस्तित्व को कायम नहीं रख सकता है, इसे सिद्धांत के एक सामान्य बंधन में मजबूत करके।

    לא רק אני מתפלל על זה, על כבוד האדם, אבל אני יכול לראות בבירור כי שום דבר מלבד השתרשות מתוך העבדות יכול להנציח את קיומו של האיחוד שלנו, על ידי איחוד זה בתוך הקשר המשותף של העיקרון.
