Founding Fathers Quotes
A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of
the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be
ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.
Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, February 12, 1779
Weary with toil, I haste me to my bed,
The dear respose for limbs with travel tir\'d;
But then begins a journey in my head
To work my mind, when body\'s work\'s expired:
For then my thoughts--from far where I abide--
Intend a zealous pilgrimage to thee,
And keep my drooping eyelids open wide,
Looking on darkness which the blind do see:
Save that my soul\'s imaginary sight
Presents thy shadow to my sightless view,
Which, like a jewel (hung in ghastly night,
Makes black night beauteous, and her old face new.
Lo! thus, by day my limbs, by night my mind,
For thee, and for myself, no quiet find.
