John Adams ( credit for photo linked via title bar)
"We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
- John Adams - October 11, 1798
A tip of the hat to my friend Richard Sutton for sharing this with me.
