Samuel Adams

I have been reading lately about one of the "founders" Samuel Adams.

Interesting material and philosophies I am discovering.

“Let divines and philosophers, statesmen and patriots, unite their endeavors to renovate the age, impressing the minds of men with the importance of educating their little boys and girls, of inculcating in the minds of youth the fear and love of the Deity and universal philanthropy, and, in subordination to these great principles, the love of their country; of instructing them in the art of self-government, without which they can never act as a wise part of the government of societies, great or small in short, of leading them in the study and practice of the exalted virtues of the Christian system.”

Samuel Adams

What some great stuff!
Our American Leaders should be required to read some of the material from the Founders.
