Founding Fathers Quotes
Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power
in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force
superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.
Noah Webster, An Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, 1787
It is best, it seems to me, to separate one's inner striving from one's
trade as far as possible. It is not good when one's daily break is tied to
God's special blessing. -- Albert Einstein
If there be nothing new, but that which is
Hath been before, how are our brains beguil'd,
Which labouring for invention bear amiss
The second burthen of a former child!
O! that record could with a backward look,
Even of five hundred courses of the sun,
Show me your image in some antique book,
Since mind at first in character was done!
That I might see what the old world could say
To this composed wonder of your frame;
Wh'r we are mended, or wh'r better they,
Or whether revolution be the same.
O! sure I am the wits of former days,
To subjects worse have given admiring praise.
