“It’s not that we don’t have enough scoundrels to curse; it’s that we don’t have enough good men to curse them.” – G.K. Chesterton - Illustrated London News, March 14, 1908
"Avarice, ambition, revenge and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. " John Adams to Massachusetts Militia Oct 11, 1798
