Quote from Daniel Webster,

"Our ancestors established their system
of government on morality and religious sentiment.
Moral habits, they believed, cannot safely be trusted
on any other foundation than religious principle,
not any government secure which is not supported by moral habits....
Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens."


Daniel Webster (more quotes by Daniel Webster or books by/about Daniel Webster)

(1782-1852) US Senator


Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1820, commemorating the arrival of the Pilgrims 200 years prior
