YOU GAVE YOUR SON FOR ME AND HAVE GIVEN ME THE ASSURANCE OF MY SALVATION.”

THE BELIEF THAT CHARACTER

DOES NOT MATTER


William penn founder of the commonwealth of pennsylvania

WILLIAM PENN(FOUNDER OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA)

“Government, like clocks, go from the motion that men give them. Therefore, government rather depends upon men than

men upon government. So, let

the men be good and the

government cannot be bad,

but if the men be bad, the

government cannot be good.”


Noah webster 1758 1843

NOAH WEBSTER (1758-1843)

“When you become entitled with the exercise of the right for voting for public office, let it be impressed upon your minds that God commands you to choose for yourselves rulers who are just men, who rule in the fear of God. If this duty is neglected and unprincipled men are placed in

the office of the government,

It will soon be corrupted.

Laws will be made, not for

public good, as much as for

selfish purposes.”
