Thoughts for Thursday: Quotes by the Founding Fathers

Thoughts for Thursday is a new feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

I'm a bit late, but Monday was President's Day, so the theme for this week's post is Quotes by our Founding Fathers.

The time is near at hand which must determine whether Americans are to be free men or slaves.--George Washington

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.--Abraham Lincoln

Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom.--John Adams

The truth is, all might be free if they valued freedom, and defended it as they ought.--Sammuel Adams

The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.--Patrick Henry

  1. The Lincoln quote is great, but here's my favorite from him: " Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt."
