The Only Foundation . . .

  • I beg leave to remark that the only foundation for a useful education in a Republic is to be laid on the foundation of religion. Without this, there can be no virtue. And without virtue, there can be no Liberty. And Liberty is the object and life of all Republican Governments . . . but the religion I mean to recommend in this place is that of the New Testament ~Benjamin Rush
