Quote Of The Day

by Doug Mataconis

From America’s Third President:

“Not in our day, but at no distant one, we may shake a rod over the heads of all, which may make the stoutest of them tremble. But I hope our wisdom will grow with our power, and teach us, that the less we use our power, the greater it will be,”

H/T: Sully
