“My friends, silence will be more acceptable to me in the discussion of these questions than applause. I desire to address myself to your judgment, your understanding, and your consciences, and not to your passions or your enthusiasm.”

Stephen A. Douglas, First Joint Debate with Abraham Lincoln at Ottawa, IL, August 21, 1858
