I think it is around the fireside of home that the virtues grow, including patriotism. We want homes. In addition, I want the rich people of this country to help support these homes.
I would like to live to see a roof over the heads of all the families of the Republic. I tell you, it does a man good to have a home. You are in partnership with nature when you plant a hill of corn. When you set out a tree you have a new interest in this world. When you own a little tract of land you feel as if you and the earth were partners. All these things dignify human nature.
