Quotes of the Day

From The Patriot Post

"The best service that can be rendered to a Country, next to that of giving it liberty, is in diffusing the mental improvement equally essential to the preservation, and the enjoyment of the blessing." ~ James Madison (letter to Littleton Dennis Teackle, 29 March 1826)

"No one more sincerely wishes the spread of information among mankind than I do, and none has greater confidence in its effect towards supporting free and good government." ~ Thomas Jefferson (letter to Trustees for the Lottery of East Tennessee College, 6 May 1810)

"Liberty without learning is always in peril. Learning without liberty is alwasy in vain."
- John F Kennedy
