Quotes from the Forefathers…

This is a post of its own! Wendy, hope you don’t mind me quoting you!

I just opened up my kids’ WORLD magazines (”God’s World”) and found some great quotes under each president in their presidential poster.

Very interesting stuff like:

“A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both” (Eisenhower)

“The Bible is the rock on which this Republic rests” (A. Jackson). 

“It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible” (Washington)

“Our Consitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other” (J. Adams).

Most profound to me and challenging for my previous statements above is:

“Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone” (John Quincy Adams)

Excellent reminder of what this great nation was founded upon!
