Founders' Daily Quote: 5 Sept 08

"Now is the seedtime of continental union, faith and honor. The least fracture now, will be like a name engraved with the point of a pin on the tender rind of a young oak; the wound would enlarge with the tree, and posterity read in it full grown characters."

--Thomas Paine (Common Sense, 1776); Reference: Paine: Collected Writings, Foner ed., Library of America (21)

This is advice we should apply today as well with all the dangers surrounding us. I just wish the citizenry would heed this wisdom...
