"No human ideal has ever been perfectly attained, since humanity itself is not perfect. But the wisdom of our forefathers and he wisdom of the thirty men who have preceded me in this office hold to the conception that progress can be attained only as the sum of accomplishments of free individuals, and they have held unalterably to these principles."
