George Washington
Quotations

"That I have foibles, and perhaps many of them, I shall not deny. I should esteem myself, as the world would, vain and empty, were I to arrogate perfection."
 
"Labor to keep alive in your breast that little spark of celestial fire called conscience."
 
"Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action."
 
"The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion. "
 
"I am mistaken if Arnold is not undergoing at this time the torments of a mental hell."
- Washington after the hanging of André
