Weekend Wisdom: Happy Birthday James Madison – “Got Cookie?”

A special post for my friends Michelle, Brett, and Hurley (golden retriever) at Belle Grove Plantation Bed and Breakfast.

Belle Grove is the birthplace of President James Madison and if you click on the link above, you can read all about the restoration.  It is going to be a gorgeous picture perfect place for a wedding or just a weekend away to relax and re-energize yourself.

Belle Grove is on my bucket list.

So in honor of James’ birthday,  I am departing from Easter Weekend Wisdom for today.

Enjoy!

Oh and be sure to enter their contest – “Got Cookie?”

The circulation of confidence is better than the circulation of money.

Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions.

All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.

In Republics, the great danger is, that the majority may not sufficiently respect the rights of the minority.

The happy Union of these States is a wonder; their Constitution a miracle; their example the hope of Liberty throughout the world.
