Quote of the Day (George Washington, on a Standard for “The Wise and Honest’)

“If to please the people, we offer what we ourselves disapprove, how can we afterwards defend our work? Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair; the rest is in the hands of God.”—George Washington, Speech to the Constitutional Convention, as quoted by Gouverneur Morris in The Records of the Federal Convention of 1787, edited by Max Ferrand (1911)
