Labour reforms are not anti-worker.
The planter, the farmer, the mechanic, and the laborer… form the great body of the people of the United States, they are the bone and sinew of the country men who love liberty and desire nothing but equal rights and equal laws.
A person who is too nice an observer of the business of the crowd, like one who is too curious in observing the labor of bees, will often be stung for his curiosity. An honest man’s the noblest work of God.
The end of labor is to gain leisure.
I only acknowledge one nobility—that of labour.
