When we are planning for posterity, we ought to remember, that virtue is not hereditary.

Thomas Paine (1737 - 1809), Common Sense, 10 Jan 1776
But where, says some, is the king of America? Iíll tell you friend, he reigns above, and doth not make havoc of mankind like the royal brute of Britain, Yet that we may not appear to be defective even in earthly honors, let a day be solemnly set apart for proclaiming the charter; let it be brought forth placed on the divine law, the word of God; let a crown be place thereon, by which the world may know, that so far as we approve of monarchy, that in America THE LAW IS KING. For as in absolute governments the King is law, so in free countries the law ought to be king; and there ought to be no other.
