We shall be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us, so that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken & so cause him to withdraw his present help from us, we shall be made a story & a byword throughout the world.
RONALD REAGAN OR JOHN WINTHROP
If we let Washington tell us when to sow and when to reap, the Nation shall soon want for bread.
THOMAS JEFFERSON OR JOHN BOEHNER
