QUOTE (George Washington) – Feb 22

February 22, 2014

April 30: George Washington becomes the first ...

“In politics as in religion, my tenets are few and simple. The leading one of which, and indeed that which embraces most others, is to be honest and just ourselves and to exact it from others, meddling as little as possible in their affairs where our own are not involved. If this maxim was generally adopted, wars would cease and our swords would soon be converted into reap hooks and our harvests be more peaceful, abundant, and happy.”
~ George Washington

In honor of George Washington, the first President of the United States, who was born on this day in 1732.

  1. I wonder what our founding fathers like Washington would have thought about our current government and their thoughts on the faith and religion in general…


    • Yeah – I don’t think that they would be too impressed with all our “improvements”.
