“Among the many objects to which a wise and free people find it necessary to direct their attention, that of providing for their safety seems to be the first.”
John Jay, The Federalist Papers

“Distrust naturally creates distrust, and by nothing is good will and kind conduct more speedily changed.”
John Jay, The Federalist Papers

“The wise and the good never form the majority of any large society and it seldom happens that their measures are uniformly adopted.... [All that wise and good men can do is] to persevere in doing their duty to their country and leave the consequences to him who made men only; neither elated by success, however great, nor discouraged by disappointments however frequent or mortifying.”
John Jay
