The MMOB Daily Quote - James Madison

Today's quotes are from birthday boy and 4th President of the United States James Madison.

Here's a brief snippet on
President Madison pulled from

James Madison, considered the Father of the Constitution of the United States, is considered by many to be its foremost architect. He was a leading theorist of republican government and was one of the founders of the Jeffersonian Republican Party in the 1790s. In 1809, he became the fourth president of the United States.

And now, here a few good words from today's notable quotable:

“Philosophy is common sense with big words.”

“In no instance have . . . the churches been guardians of the liberties of the people.”

“The truth is that all men having power ought to be mistrusted.”

“It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.”

“The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe with blood for centuries.”

“In Republics, the great danger is, that the majority may not sufficiently respect the rights of the minority”

“If men were angels, no government would be necessary.”
