Truth is generally the best vindication against slander.john hay
A piece of simple goodness a letter gushing from the heart; a beautiful unstudied vindication of the worth and untiring sweetness of human nature a record of the invulnerability of man, armed with high purpose, sanctified by truth.
Our goal is not victory of might but the vindication of right not peace at the expense of freedom, but both peace and freedom, here in this hemisphere and, we hope, around the world. God willing, that goal will be achieved.
Truth is generally the best vindication against slander.Abraham Lincoln
