Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled either by a power within them or a power without them; either by the Word of God or the strong arm of man; either by the Bible of the bayonet. – Robert Winthrop, U.S. Speaker of the House, 1847-1849

At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us.  It cannot come from abroad.  If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. – Abraham Lincoln

Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. – Matthew 13:30 KJV

When a people shall have become incapable of governing themselves and fit for a master, it is of little consequence from what quarter he comes. – George Washington
