A couple of quotes from the Father of Our Country:
"My first wish is to see this plague of mankind, war, banished from the earth."
~ Geo. Washington
"Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force.
Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."
It's kind of fun to be able to pick and choose the words you like to associate with people. For everything that one says, it seems you can find a like contradictory quote, so I will just stick with these two.
