The Words of Our Founding Father's--Washington Wednesday

We have not had much time to read "The Real George Washinton" lately, and I really miss it! We bought a new book ("The 5000 year Leap") and have been reading it whenever we have the time, before bed. Really amazing book and helps put so much together that I have heard or read about, but did not know the meaning! But, back to George...I still miss him and might just have to sneak in a few chapters sometime! ha!ha!
Here are some more great quotes from this great man for you to read and digest today!

"The foundation of our Empire was not laid in the gloomy age of Ignorance and Superstition, but at an Epoch when the rights of mankind were better understood and more clearly defined, than at any former period." George Washington

"No country upon earth ever had it more in its power to attain these blessings than United America. Wondrously strange, then, and much to be regretted indeed would it be, were we to neglect the means and to depart from the road which Providence has pointed us to so plainly; I cannot believe it will ever come to pass." George Washington

"If we are wise, let us prepare for the worst."
-George Washington

  3. This sounds like I book that I would read when I have nothing else on my plate. I'm so glad you shared it with us.

  4. I keep hearing about "The 5000 year Leap" and it just looks like one of those books that is a must read though just reading about "The Real George Washington" that sounds good too.
