NUMBER:300
AUTHOR:John Caldwell Calhoun (1782–1850)
QUOTATION:I never know what South Carolina thinks of a measure. I never consult her. I act to the best of my judgment, and according to my conscience. If she approves, well and good. If she does not, or wishes any one to take my place, I am ready to vacate. We are even.
ATTRIBUTION:JOHN C. CALHOUN, Representative and Senator.—Walter J. Miller, “Calhoun as a Lawyer and Statesman,” part 2, The Green Bag, June 1899, p. 271. Although Miller states “I will cite his own words,” this quotation has not been verified in Calhoun’s writings.
SUBJECTS:Congressmen
