About this Quote
This quote recommends that it is not enough to simply mention one's beliefs and values, but it is equally needed to make it clear which actions or mindsets break those beliefs and values. It is important to develop boundaries as well as not allow anything that conflicts with one's principles.
"If the present Congress errs in too much talking, how can it be otherwise in a body to which the people send one hundred and fifty lawyers, whose trade it is to question everything, yield nothing, and talk by the hour?"
