For Today and Every Day

Your love of liberty—your respect for the laws—your habits of industry—and your practice of the moral and religious obligations, are the strongest claims to national and individual happiness, and they will, I trust, be firmly and lastingly established. 
George Washington

A republic, if you can keep it. 
Benjamin Franklin

The Inauguration of George Washington (1789), from the National Archives
