Founding Fathers Quotes
As our president bears no resemblance to a king so we shall see the Senate has no similitude to nobles. First, not being
hereditary, their collective knowledge, wisdom, and virtue are not precarious. For by these qualities alone are they to obtain
their offices, and they will have none of the peculiar qualities and vices of those men who possess power merely because their
father held it before them.
Tench Coxe, An American Citizen, No.2, September 28, 1787
Tis not a lip or eye we beauty call, But the joint force and full result of all.
-Alexander Pope, An Essay on Criticism, 1711
The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever,
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
