Some Quotes by George Washinton...

“It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible”

“You do well to wish to learn our arts and our ways of life and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ. These will make you a greater and happier people than you are.”

"Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company."

 "If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known, that we are at all times ready for War."

"It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one."

"When we assumed the Soldier, we did not lay aside the Citizen."

 "The Constitution is the guide which I never will abandon."

Some of Washington's favorite verses from the Bible 

Micah 4:4: “But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it.” 

“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land”. – 2 Chronicles 7:14

“For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” - Hebrews 4:15

I agree that George Washington is my favorite president. Love the pictures.

I would have gotten on here sooner, but for some strange reason, the computer I usually use doesn't let me get on your blog.:} Go figure. And I haven't been on much at all since I spent all day Wednesday on the computer getting my book to the publisher.:)
