Founder's Quote, 9 June 2016

It is too probable that no plan we propose will be adopted. Perhaps another dreadful conflict is to be sustained. If, to please the people, we offer what we ourselves disprove, how can we afterwards defend our work? Let us raise a standard to which the wise and the honest can repair. The event is in the hand of God. - George Washington, as quoted by Gouverneur Morris in Farrand's Records of the Federal Convention of 1787 — 1787
