Virtue and Liberty
March 10, 2008
Two quotes by a favorite president of mine, John Adams.
“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our constitution as a whale goes through a net.”
“Liberty can no more exist without virtue and independence than the body can live and move without a soul.”
