Independence Day....Quotes & Poems below...

There are no necessary evils in government. It's evils exist only in it's abuses. If it would confine itself to equal protection and as Heaven does its Rains, shower its favors alike on the high and the low, the rich and the poor, it would be an unqualified Blessing.

Andrew Jackson

Be Courteous to all but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried, before you give them confidence. True Friendship is a plant of slow growth and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity, before it is entitled to the appellation.

George Washington

Nice quote from Mr. Jackson. I wonder what his mind would think of today's situations?
I am almost afraid to say I belong to this country's inhabitants. Would that the future could include lessons from the past instead of new attacks on the gentle soul. Thanks
