PATRIOTIC  QUOTES
" IF  WE  WILL  NOT  BE  GOVERNED  BY  GOD,
THEN  WE  WILL  BE 
RULED  BY  TYRANTS "
-  William Penn
"I THEREFORE BELIEVE IT IS MY DUTY TO MY COUNTRY TO LOVE IT,  TO SUPPORT ITS CONSTITUTION,  TO OBEY ITS LAWS,  TO RESPECT ITS FLAG,  AND
TO DEFEND IT AGAINST ALL ENEMIES"   -
William Tyler Page
John Adams
"Liberty can no more exist without virtue and independence than the body can live and move without a soul."
***
Samuel Adams
"[N]either the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are
universally corrupt.  He therefore is the truest friend of the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who,
so far as his power and influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chosen onto any office of power and trust who is not
a wise and virtuous man."

***
"The diminuition of public virtue is usually attended with that of public happiness, and the public liberty will not long
survive the total extinction of morals."

Edmund Burke
"What is liberty without wisdom and without virtue? It is the greatest of all possible evils; for it is folly, vice, and madness,
without tuition or restraint."
***
"It is better to cherish virtue and humanity, by leaving much to free will, even with some loss of the object, than to attempt
to make men mere machines and instruments of political benevolence.  The world on the whole will gain by a liberty,
without which  virtue cannot exist."

***
"Among a people generally corrupt liberty cannot long exists."

Calvin Coolidge

"The meaning of America is not to be found in a life without toil.  Freedom is not only bought with a great
price;  it is maintained by unremitting effort".
***
"It is the duty of a citizen not only to observe the law but to let it be known that he is opposed to its violation".


Patrick Henry

"Bad men cannot make good citzens. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains.  A vitiated state of morals,
a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom.  No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be
preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent
recurrence to fundamental principals."


Thomas Jefferson

"The GOD who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time".
***
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.  It is its natural manure"
***
"No power over the freedom of religion ... (is) delegated to the United States by the Constitution"
***
"Liberty. . .is the great parent of science and of virtue;  and. . .a nation will be great in both always in proportion as it is free.
"

Peter Marshall

"May freedom be seen not as the right to do as we please but as the opportunity to please to do what is right.
May it ever be understood that our liberty is under GOD and can be found nowhere else...  to the extent that
America honors Thee, wilt Thou bless America ..."

William Penn
"If men be good, government cannot be bad."

Proverbs 14:34
"Righteousness exalteth a nation."


Ronald Reagan

"Government should uphold -- and not undermine -- those institutions which are custodians of the very values upon
which civilization was founded:  religion, education, and above all family".
***
"A state is nothing more than a reflection of its citizens; the more decent the citizens, the more decent the state."


Theodore Roosevelt

"To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society".

Algernon Sidney
"[L]iberty cannot be preserved, if the manners of the people are corrupted. . ."

Aaron Tippen
Yes there's a lady that stands in a harbor for what we believe.
And there's a bell that still echoes the price that it cost to be free.
"Where The Stars And Stripes And Eagles Fly"

James H. Thornwell

"No polity can be devised which shall perpetuate freedom among a people that are dead to
honor and intergrity.  Liberty and virtue are twin sisters, and the best fabric in the world. . .

Alexis de Tocqueville

"[Liberty] considers religion as the safeguard of morality, and morality as the
best security of law and the surest pledge of the duration of freedom.
"

George Washington

"It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Al-Mighty GOD and to obey His will".

Samuel West

"[P]erfect freedom consists in obeying the dictates of right reason, and submitting to natural law.  When a man
goes beyond or contrary to the law of nature and reason, he. . .introduces confusion and disorder into society. . .
[thus] where licentiousness begins, liberty ends."


Woodrow Wilson

"Liberty has never come from the government; it has always come from the subjects of it.  The history of
Liberty is a history of limitation of govermental power, not the increase of i
