Quotations

Benjamin Franklin:

  • Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy wealthy and wise.
  • Happiness consists more in small conveniences or pleasures that occur every day, than in great pieces of good fortune that happen but seldom.
  • Work as if you were to live one hundred years; pray as if you were to die tomorrow.
  • Lost time is never found again.
  • You may delay, but time will not.
  • Does’t thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of.
  • One today is worth two tomorrows.Today is yesterday’s pupil.
  • Genius is nothing but a greater aptitude for patience.
  • Energy and persistence conquer all things.

George Washington:

  • A primary object should be the education of our youth in the science of government. In a republic, what species of knowledge can be equally important? And what duty more pressing than communicating it to those who are to be the future guardians of the liberties of the country?
  • Human happiness and moral duty are inseparably connected.
  • 99% of failures come from people who make excuses.
  • Associate yourself with men of good quality, if you esteem your own reputation; for ‘tis better to be alone than in bad company.

Thomas Jefferson:

  • Health is worth more than learning.
  • In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
  • I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.
  • No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.
  • I cannot live without books.
  • Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.
  • The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.
  • I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.
  • The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time.
  • I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
  • If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.

Family history in stories recalled by Edie and Leo. Edith GAYLORD Allen, Leo ALLEN, Jr

Princes, Paupers, Pilgrims & Pioneers

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
