After watching a historical series about George Washington and the founding of America on Saturday night, I thought it fitting to read some motivational quotes by George Washington, Benjamin Franklin(very instrumental in getting us funds and France's navy-or we might not have won the war) and Thomas Paine author of Common Sense.
“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.” George Washington
“The basis of our political system is the right of the people to make and to altertheir constitutions of government”
“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.” Benjamin Franklin
“If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.” Benjamin Franklin
