Quote of the day......

Human nature itself is evermore 

an advocate for liberty. 

There is also in human nature 

a resentment of injury, and 

indignation against wrong. 

A love of truth and a veneration of virtue. 

These amiable passions, are the "latent spark"… 

If the people are capable of understanding, 

seeing and feeling the differences 

between true and false, 

right and wrong, 

virtue and vice, 

to what better principle can 

the friends of mankind apply 

than to the sense of this difference?

-- John Adams
(1735-1826) Founding Father, 2nd US President
