|History has put America in a position where its national security depends on its further moral growth.||Morality, Ethics & Conflict of Interest|
|The world’s gravest conflicts are not over ethical principles or disputed values but over disputed facts.||War & Peace|
|You must recollect that our situation is different from that of other towns in the Eastern part of the State, which have always enjoyed the benefits of churches, schools & other civilizing influences. We have always been a frontier Town, where the wild & reckless sons of the Plains have congregated, their influences are still felt here, but we are rapidly overcoming them, let us alone & we will work out our own salvation in due season. I flatter myself that I know how to handle the boys, they cannot be driven. Please do not borrow trouble Governor about the conduct or management of Dodge City.||Law, Courts, Jails, Crime & Law Enforcement|
