Alexander Hamilton

A quote from Alexander Hamilton

I have resolved, if our interview is conducted in the usual manner, and it pleases God to give me the opportunity, to reserve and throw away my first fire, and I have thoughts even of reserving my second fire.

— Written the night before the duel with Aaron Burr [July 10th, 1804]
