I feel much alarmed at the prospect of seeing General Jackson President. He is one of the most unfit men I know of for such a place. He has had very little respect for laws and constitutions, and is, in fact, an able military chief. His passions are terrible. When I was President of the Senate, he was Senator; and he could never speak on account of the rashness of his feelings. I have seen him attempt it repeatedly, and as often choke with rage. His passions are, no doubt, cooler now; he has been much tried since I knew him, but he is a dangerous man.
When a man has cast his longing eye on offices, a rottenness begins in his conduct.
We never repent of having eaten too little.
Never put off till to-morrow what you can do to-day.
Never trouble another for what you can do yourself.
