"Hold on, my friends,

to the Constitution and

to the Republic for which it stands.

Miracles do not cluster

and what has happened once in 6,000 years,

may not happen again.

Hold on to the Constitution,

for if the American Constitution should fail,

there will be anarchy throughout the world."

-- Daniel Webster

(1782-1852), US Senator





"The American Constitution,

one of the few modern political

documents drawn up by men

who were forced by the sternest

circumstances to think out

what they really had to face,

instead of chopping logic

in a university classroom."

-- George Bernard Shaw

(1856-1950) Irish comic dramatist




"On the distinctive principles of the Government ...

of the U. States, the best guides are to be found in ...

The Declaration of Independence,

as the fundamental Act of Union of these States."

-- James Madison

(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President
