Quote of the Week

"Not until I went to the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great."

- Alexis de Tocqueville, 19th-century French writer, from his book Democracy in America

(Painting: "Rainy Day, Fifth Avenue," by Childe Hassam, 1916)
