Quote from Alexander Hamilton 

"Let us recollect that peace or war
will not always be left to our option;
that however moderate or unambitious we may be,
we cannot count upon the moderation, or
hope to extinguish the ambition of others. ...
The best we can hope for concerning the people
at large is that they be properly armed."

Alexander Hamilton
(1757-1804) American statesman, Secretary of the Treasury
