"Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world.” –U.S. Senator Daniel Webster (1782-1852)
“At a point in nearly everyone’s life, Fate walks up behind you, taps you
on the shoulder, and points to a great and noble challenge, awaiting your
touch... your destiny! What a pity, when she finds you unprepared, then
sullenly withdraws, never to touch you again.” ~Winston Churchill
"This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction." ~ St. George Tucker, 1803
