Few men have virtue to withstand the highest bidder.

President George Washington

Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.

President George Washington

Experience teaches us that it is much easier to prevent an enemy from posting themselves than it is to dislodge them after they have got possession.

President George Washington

 

Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance;
they are the peoples' liberty's teeth.

President George Washington

 

Government is not reason;
it is not eloquent; it is force.
Like fire, it is a dangerous servant
and a fearful master.

President George Washington


Happiness and moral duty
are inseparably connected.

President George Washington

 

If the freedom of speech is taken away
then dumb and silent we may be led,
like sheep to the slaughter.

President George Washington

 

 

If we desire to avoid insult,
we must be able to repel it;
if we desire to secure peace,
one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity,
it must be known, that we are at all times ready for War.

President George Washington
