(Webster's) Founding quote of the day

This is one of those features that I enjoy so much over at The Maritime Sentry. No; I'm not planning a Webster's Founding quote of the day, it is a function taken up by others whom I respect, and I will not invade on their territory. However, I don't see anything wrong with an occasional "Founding quote of the day" here at Webster's, particularly given that this blog frequently highlights the wisdom and authority of the founding generation.

Below is my first installment:

The brief exposition of the Constitution will unfold to young people the principles of republican government; and it is the sincere desire of the writer that our citizens should early understand that the genuine source of correct republican principles is the BIBLE, particularly the New Testament or the Christian Religion.

-Noah Webster, History of the United States c. 1834

He left out Alinsky and community organizing. That's foundational too.

Old Atlantic, what is that, some kind of a riddle? Please clarify. Thanks.

What a powerful quote. One of the biggest blessings from our blog has been to see other blogs start their own founding fathers's quotes. As you already know, this is a heritage that so many have lost touch with. It is important that we all reconnect with our founders' vision for this Republic.
