Historical Weekend Wisdom: Preserving Freedom

Welcome to the next to the last weekend of Historical Weekend Wisdom.

Today’s quote from John Adams should make everyone stop and think. We will never truly know what it cost President Adams’ generation to establish our freedom. A freedom so many of our fellow citizens are willing to surrender.

Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make a good use of it.

Historical Weekend Wisdom: Government Quotes

Here are quotes of wisdom from men who are smarter than any politician currently in office. (Democrat, Republican, Tea Party, Independent etc…)

“Those people who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants.”

William Penn

“A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have,”

Gerald R. Ford

in an address to a joint session of Congress on August 12, 1974.[1]

The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, and government to gain ground.”[2]

Thomas Jefferson

“Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself.”

John Adams
