Here’s a few quotes from the Father of Our Country:
- To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.
- If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.
- Let your heart feel for the afflictions and distress of everyone, and let your hand give in proportion to your purse.
- It is better to be alone than in bad company.
- It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
- The foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing is a vice so mean and low that every person of sense and character detests and despises it.
- Some day, following the example of the United States of America, there will be a United States of Europe.
Guess who else was born on February 22nd? Here’s a quote from the mystery person:
