The Federalist Patriot Founders' Quote Daily

"Liberty is not to be enjoyed, indeed it cannot exist, without the habits of just subordination; it consists, not so much in removing all restraint from the orderly, as in imposing it on the violent."

-- Fisher Ames

(Essay on Equality, 15 December 1801)
