Historical Weekend Wisdom For January

History was my best subject in school.  I found past events and people fascinating because there was so  much to learn about and from them.

So in honor of Inauguration Day on the 20th of this month, Weekend Wisdom will be quotes from famous people.  I had a lot of fun researching quotes and hope you enjoy the weekend history lessons.

Special Announcement

On Sunday, January 13th there will be no Historical Weekend Wisdom but instead there will be a Slideshow celebrating JoyReturns 2nd Blogoversary.

“Let’s Get It Started”

Without further adieu, here is Thomas Paine to  kick off Historical Weekend Wisdom.

“It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government.”

Thomas Paine

“Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.”

Thomas Paine

“The cause of America is in a great measure the cause of all mankind. Where, some say, is the king of America?

I’ll tell you, friend, He reigns above.”

Thomas Paine
