A Recipe for Strength

"Virtue, morality and religion. This is the armour my friend, and this alone, that renders us invincible. These are the tactics we should study; if we lose these, we are conquered; fallen indeed. So long as our manners and principles remain sound, there is no danger." ~Patrick Henry

"No government can continue good, but under the control of the people. Their minds are to be informed by education of what is right and what is wrong; to be encouraged in habits of virtue and to be deferred from those of vice." ~Thomas Jefferson

Human Rights

Up and Running...Mostly

I apologize that I've dropped the ball here; we had a death in the family and I just haven't had the gumption to get moving and search for wonderful quotes; I've found a few recently, and I'm going to try to get back up to where I have this on auto-pilot again. Thanks for sticking with us. Jeannetta
