“It is well known that Peace has been (to borrow a
modern phraze) the order of the day with me, since the disturbances in Europe
first commenced. My policy has been, and wil continue to be, while I have the
honor to remain in the administration of government, to be upon friendly terms
with, but independant of, all nations of the earth. To share in the broils of
none. To fulfil our own engagements. To supply the wants, and be carriers for
them all: being thoroughly convinced that it is our policy and interest to do
so; and that nothing short of self respect, and that justice which is essential
to a national character, ought to involve us in War; for sure I am, if this
country is preserved in tranquility twenty years longer, it may bid defiance,
in a just cause, to any power whatever, such, in that time, will be its
population, wealth, and resource.”— George Washington, Letter
to Gouverneur Morris [December 22, 1795]
"I love the man that can smile in trouble,
that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the
business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose
conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death." -
Thomas Paine, The Crisis, No. 1, 1776

"He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppresion; for if he violates this duty he estabalishes a precedent that will reach to himself." -Thomas Paine, Common Sense 1776
