This is the first of a weekly series for the blog. It will feature, first and foremost, quotes from the Founding Fathers of our country. I think it’s always a good idea to go back to the sources of things, especially things we may think we already know or take for granted in other ways. Also, I will, from time to time, include quotes from the Fathers of the Church and the Desert Fathers, for the same reasons. I may also, much less frequently, quotes from poets and poetry, and other worthy sources. So often, these early sources provide a totally new insight into belief systems that, as I said, we tend to take for granted.
