Born To Reign

“Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.”

The Name ‘American’

“The name of “American,” which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt in you a just pride of patriotism. For you are citizens by birth or choice of this common country, a country that has a right to concentrate your affections.”

– George Washington
