Words of widsom

A collection of some of my favorite quotes:

“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
The Bible – Micah 6:8

“If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this.”
― C. S. Lewis

“This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector.”
– Plato

“The natural progression of things is for liberty to yield and for government to gain ground.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“Government is not reason, it is not eloquence – it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and fearful master.”
– George Washington

“America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own.”
– John Quincy Adams

“The means of defence against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home.”
– James Madison
