No man should have a political office because he wants a job.
Newspaper men, perhaps more than any other class, are rated by ability.
My stars and my stripes are your dream and your labors.
I am not the flag: not at all. I am but its shadow.
A public office is not a job, it is an opportunity to do something for the public.
For you are the makers of the flag and it is well that you glory in the making.
