The Quotable George Washington: The Wisdom of an American Patriot
Rowman & Littlefield, 1999 - 110 páginas
Here, collected in an elegant volume, is the authoritative selection of Washington's thoughts and observations culled from his public and private correspondence. As we read his comments on subjects as diverse as government, foreign policy, religious freedom, friendship, character, and relations between the sexes, we find that his words are often as applicable to our own time as they were to his.
