Horace Greeley
If any young man is about to commence the world, we say to him, publicly and privately, Go to the West.
Greeley quotes
The Republic needed to be passed through chastening, purifying fires of adversity and suffering: so these came and did their work and the verdure of a new national life springs greenly, luxuriantly, from their ashes.
A widow of doubtful age will marry almost any sort of a white man.

Greeley Horace quotes
The illusion that times that were are better than those that are, has probably pervaded all ages.
Greeley Horace
The masses of our countrymen, North and South, are eager to clasp hands across the bloody chasm which has so long divided them.
Horace Greeley quotes
I never said all Democrats were saloonkeepers; what I said was that all saloonkeepers are Democrats.
Horace Greeley
There aren't half enough of them going there as it is.
Greeley Horace quotes
If Uncle Sam should ever sell that tract for one cent per acre, he will swindle the purchaser outrageously.
