Excerpt from Class of 1884, Harvard College: Report of Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Celebration; Supplement to Report VII, October, 1909
Thus we believe in democracy, heart and soul. And we believe in it because we are idealists, because we are men of faith and vision. That faith and vision grow stronger and clearer as we grow older. I came across, some years ago, a forensic that I wrote in college on the limitations of suffrage. It made me ashamed, it was so academic and pessimistic, and so without the vision. If any of us now believe in a limitation of suffrage, it is not as 'a finality. It is only as a means through which the larger ideal of the State may be attained. In its ultimate essence democracy is our goal, something to believe in, to work for, to live for, and, if need be, to die for.
In such a belief in democracy there are two elements. One is belief in the value of the individual and the other is belief in the value of the State. Democracy stands for belief in the absolute value of each individual, and it stands no less for belief in the State, in which alone the individual finds the guarantee of his true self.
