George Washington

A quote from George Washington

Let us look to our National character, and to things beyond the present period. No Morn ever dawned more favourable than ours did--and no day was ever more clouded than the present! Wisdom, & good examples are necessary at this time to rescue the political machine from the impending storm.

— On the difficulties leading up to the Constitution. [November 5th, 1786]
