Wise Government 37

Dear Mr. Franklin,

“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.” J. Madison

Value of Work

Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies will have their fill of poverty.

Proverbs 28:19
