„Fellow citizens, in the name of your rights and liberties, which I believe have been trampled upon, I refuse to take this oath.“

—  Sam Houston

As quoted in Sam Houston (2004), by James Haley, University of Oklahoma Press, pp. 390–91
1860s
Contesto: Fellow citizens, in the name of your rights and liberties, which I believe have been trampled upon, I refuse to take this oath. In the name of the nationality of Texas, which has been betrayed by the Convention, I refuse to take this oath. In the name of the Constitution of Texas, I refuse to take this oath. In the name of my own conscience and manhood, which this Convention would degrade by dragging me before it, to pander to the malice of my enemies, I refuse to take this oath. I deny the power of this Convention to speak for Texas.... I protest.... against all the acts and doings of this convention and I declare them null and void

„Our people are going to war to perpetuate slavery, but the war will be its death knell.“

—  Sam Houston
