Event

 
"I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe ... Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter.  -- From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence, I must confess that I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing. Make them intelligent, and they will be vigilant; give them the means of detecting the wrong, and they will apply the remedy."
-- Daniel Webster
(1782-1852), US Senator

"Fidelity to the public requires that the laws be as plain and explicit as possible, that the less knowing may understand, and not be ensnared by them, while the artful evade their force."
-- Samuel Cooke
(1709-1783) Pastor of the Second Church in Cambridge
Source: May 30, 1770, Sermon before the Massachusets Bay provincial House of Representatives
