Founders’ Quote Daily

“[T]he only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in 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.”

— Benjamin Rush (On the Mode of Education Proper in a Republic, 1806)

Reference: Original Intent, Barton (153); original Essays, Literary, Moral and Philosohpical, Rush (8)
