"All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects in their Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation."

"And, therefore, it behoves us to ask with so much the greater care, that he
would increase our hope when it is small, awaken it when it is dormant,
confirm it when it is wavering, strengthen it when it is weak, and that he
would even raise it up when it is overthrown."

John Newton on the Minister

"I measure ministers by square measure. I have no idea of the size of a table, if you only tell me how long it is: but if you also say how wide, I can tell its dimensions. So, when you tell me what a man is in the pulpit, you must also tell me what he is out of it, or I shall not know his size"
JOHN NEWTON

George Washington Part of Farwell Address

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, November 17, 2009 at 7:00 AM


"It is impossible to govern the world without God and the Bible. Of all the dispositions and habits that lead to political prosperity, our religion and morality are the indispensable supporters. Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that our national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle."

Jonathan Edwards on True Happiness

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, November 12, 2009 at 4:00 AM

"The enjoyment of [God] is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here. Fathers and mothers, husbands, wives, or children, or the company of earthly friends, are but shadows; but God is the substance. These are but scattered beams, but God is the sun. These are but streams. But God is the ocean."
Jonathan Edwards



George Washington's Farewell Address

Posted by Andrew K. | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, November 11, 2009 at 3:00 AM

"The impressions, with which I first undertook the arduous trust, were explained on the proper occasion. In the discharge of this trust, I will only say, that I have, with good intentions, contributed towards the organization and administration of the government the best exertions of which a very fallible judgment was capable. Not unconscious, in the outset, of the inferiority of my qualifications, experience in my own eyes, perhaps still more in the eyes of others, has strengthened the motives to diffidence of myself; and every day the increasing weight of years admonishes me more and more, that the shade of retirement is as necessary to me as it will be welcome. Satisfied, that, if any circumstances have given peculiar value to my services, they were temporary, I have the consolation to believe, that, while choice and prudence invite me to quit the political scene, patriotism does not forbid it."
