A Birthday Message from George Washington

Some quotes attributed to George Washington:


Arbitrary power is most easily established on the ruins of libery abused to licentiousness.


Few men have the virtue to withstand the highest bidder.


Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance. They are the people's liberty's teeth.


Observe good faith and justice with all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all.


To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.
