Quotes of the Day - voting

"Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual - or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country." ~ Samuel Adams, in the Boston Gazette, 1781

"In selecting men for office, let principle be your guide. Regard not the particular sect or denomination of the candidate -- look to his character..." ~ Noah Webster, Letters to a Young Gentleman Commencing His Education, 1789
