Washington's Wisdom

In honor of president's Day I thought I would share some of my favorite quotes from George Washington. He was an eloquent man with a brilliant mind. I even have his portrait hanging in my bedroom because he impresses me so much. No other man could have been our first president!

"I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man."


"Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle."


"Let your heart feel for the afflictions and distress of everyone, and let your hand give in proportion to your purse."


"Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company."


“The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.”

Scripture of the Day: Gen. 2:18, 24

PS, today I posted on ANWA as well.
