Still a Union that can only be maintained by swords and bayonets, and in which strife and civil war are to take the place of brotherly love and kindness, has no charm for me.

    Aún así, una unión que solo puede ser mantenida por espadas y bayonetas, y en la cual la lucha y la guerra civil deben tomar el lugar del amor fraternal y la bondad, no tiene encanto para mí.

    fremdeles en union som bare kan opprettholdes av sverd og bajonetter, og hvor strid og borgerkrig skal innta stedet for broderkjærlighet og vennlighet, har ingen sjarm for meg.
