" . . . I want you to know that it was through the efforts of K-17, Lanello, and me
that Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was exiled to the West rather than executed.
I want you to know that we were able to work this work of light
because we had energy to use . . . "—Godfre, February 26, 1974

"The End Crowns All."the motto of Godfre

"The distortion that drove into China and India thru the priesthood was the thing which makes the deplorable condition there today. In Tibet the fanaticism has grown so great that but for our knowledge of the great cosmic light and its refining purifying activity there would be but little hope for the restoration of that once great nation. Still you shall all see the great change which will take place in the next hundred years there. Try not to feel human responsibility, but place all of the responsibility in the hands of your Mighty I AM Presence knowing it is all-powerful to direct, to protect and to regulate all that is required—remember! Everyone must regulate his own life. We must handle the people as children and just be patient."

August 30,1937

"Thus it is the new dispensation of Aquarius. Thus it is understood that there must be a new definition of freedom of religion. There must be a new understanding by those who founded this nation and have moved forward in their Protestantism, in their Catholicism, and in their Judaism that in this hour none may have a monopoly on the path of religious freedom, that the way made plain must be acknowledged to be made plain by the one God and the I AM Presence of that individual and the beloved Holy Christ Self.

"This Higher Mind, beloved ones, does lead the soul into all Truth step by step in the seven rainbow rays. Thus, the paths of enlightenment by the Holy Spirit in this age, prophesied by the Lord Christ, come unto the individual, each one according to his need, his ancient karma, his preparation in the school of life, his initiations of spiritual fire that have taken place in the inner retreats of the Great White Brotherhood."

"Beloved ones, those who serve in the retreats of the Great White Brotherhood, who have passed from the screen of life and now serve in this Community, who have been in the I AM movement, who have been in The Summit Lighthouse—these ones, beloved, are as close to you as the person sitting next to you. Yet they are robed in garments of light.

"They go to various chambers where, for instance, they repeat mantras for the healing of fear, for the setting aright of the out-of-alignment state that they, like you and others, have allowed themselves to get into. Think, then, that in this moment you may be but a seat away from an initiate!"

Serapis Bey

"I call all of the faithful worldwide to action now for Saint Germain.

" . . . Let us march with God Harmony. Let us march to our own tune and not that of the pied piper of restlessness, procrastination and self-concern. Let us see what life will afford those who give their lives, and give them ultimately in a spiritual sense."

July 14, 1987

" . . . Let it simply be asked, where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths, which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles. It is substantially true that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government. The rule, indeed, extends with more or less force to every species of free government. Who, that is a sincere friend to it, can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric?

February 22, 1982

" . . . And the two thousand year dispensation of Jesus Christ is fulfilled in this hour through every one of you who does understand that the culmination of that mission and the fullness of that cup is to go all the way in the stand for freedom.

" . . . Some men have neutralized their sensitivity to the voice of God and conscience, for they desire not the living truth; they desire not the living truth, beloved ones, because they prefer their ways. They prefer the darkness to the light, for their deeds are evil (John 3:19). Thus this is the searing of conscience as with a hot iron (1Tim. 4:1-2), as the Apostle said. And they no longer respond to the voice within, and therefore they make their own rules, regulations and laws. They have become a law unto themselves and raised on high the banner of their human standards of right and wrong. Thus, beloved, let the whole stream of ideas, actions and the consequences thereof be examined.

" . . . Their prayers of malintent, their false pastors—in so far as they encroach upon others' freedom—must also be broken . . . if any part or portion of the Ascended Masters Teaching should be denied you and prohibited as church councils have done in past ages, if the Messenger should not have freedom from fear to be the instrument of whatever we may say concerning personal and planetary conditions, then beloved, your loss of a part of this freedom becomes the loss of the whole. Only the whole wafer can make you free; only the whole body of the mystical teachings of the Lord Christ is sufficient.

" . . . Thus protection comes to you when the whole man is made whole through harmony, through obedience to all of God's laws."


"To be your brothers' keeper, then, I come. And this plan taken to heart by the few will bring the world to that place where—instead of the Luciferian concept and execution of the United Nations —there shall be one family, one body of God and one body of Christ upon Terra. and only then can Terra enter into the Golden Age of the Christ consciousness.

"This is the opportunity of the hour and I seal the symbol in your forehead: to be our brothers' keeper—of this mission and of this pledge, that within your very soul you may be reminded each day that there are millions, who require your support and the strong arm of the Brotherhood, which can be given only through your invocations."

December 28, 1973

"And what about those chelas on the Path who are a part of the I AM movement so dear to my heart. Why have they rejected this messenger? Why have they failed to come when I have appealed to their hearts? I ask you to pray for them. I ask you to pray for those children of the light who must understand that the nature of [the relationship between] the chela and the guru is obedience, but it is also understanding. The chela must also weigh the Law and weigh the principles of the Law and come to his own conclusions. The chela must understand that a certain teaching given through the messengers may change because of changing conditions in the world.

"Saint Germain had a great plan for America, and if the children of light had responded to that plan there would not be a need to have further messengers. But the need is great. Hierarchy has acted. Hierarchy is not limited by doctrine or dogma or prophecy or even its own previous statements on the Law.

" . . . Yes, I AM God-free! But I will never rest until you are God-free, until America is God-free! Precious ones, if you will but take that fervor of the early patriots who knew that all of the future and all of life and the future of freedom on the earth depended upon their staying power—if you will take that fervor, you will save America and we will win for God together. We expect victory!"

July 3, 1976

"I have the attainment from Atlantis of having been a scientist, beloved, and I have employed the methods of precipitation for ten thousand years and more. I seek to show you how to bring into manifestation the Light from realms above. I seek to show you many things whereby you may better organize yourselves, make better use of time and energy, and have greater access to the consciousness of your I AM Presence.

"I come with my twin flame in this hour, beloved, for we work together in this service. We worked with the students of the I AM when Godfre and Lotus were serving this nation. We continue to work with all students who will diligently invoke the violet flame."

Lady Master Leto

"Know this, beloved, that there is a moment—and this is that moment—to decide that you and you alone can move as a Joan of Arc, as an Edna Ballard (who was incarnated as Joan of Arc). But, beware, devotion to an honorable cause may not be enough to achieve your victory. You must stay attuned to the voice of your Holy Christ Self and the ascended hosts.

"Now learn from the example of the Maid of Orleans. She was within a hair’s breadth of a victorious mission when, counter to the warnings of her inner 'voices,' she attacked a town that harbored French loyalists to England. They betrayed her and allowed the English to entrap her. The French king responded to the English demands for her ransom with a mere ho-hum. He no longer had any use for this Maid of Orleans, though she had given her all for him.

"Ironically, her ransom was finally paid by her enemies in the Church. But they wanted her solely for vengeance, and their devious machinations reached their denouement on May 30, 1431 when she was burned at the stake. At the last, Archangel Michael instructed her to inhale the smoke
that her pain not be protracted, whereupon her soul took flight to higher realms.

"Blessed ones, those were the times when people decided to wage war and win. It was clear-cut. And although Joan of Arc caused her own downfall by her failure to follow her inner guides, she did not deny her tie to them at her trial. On the contrary, she went to the stake defending her right to direct communion with God."

Archangel Uriel

"In my final life as Francis Bacon I endeavored to set forth, as I was able, those keys to the destiny of America that each and every one of you hold, as members of the I AM Race, within the nucleus of your heart in a very precious golden box that is upon the altar of your temple. There, in the heart of Life, are the secrets of the ages and the mysteries which I have come to unveil.

"I AM indeed the one anointed as the seventh angel in this dispensation, come for the finishing of the mystery of God! Blessed ones, the unveiling of those mysteries through beloved Godfre and Lotus and through your own messengers has come to an hour of fulfillment for many—and to the hour of beginning for others among you . . . Therefore, the messengers assemble. And the three ascended form the action of the Trinity as the one who remains in the physical octave focuses the Light of the Mother. See, then, how the miracle of Mighty Victory and of the threefold flame continues the mission in an unbroken stream of light.

" . . . And I have also sealed, in that golden box upon the altar of the Light-bearers, those teachings of the I AM—those teachings inscribed in those three books dictated to beloved Godfre and set forth by the twin flames of their messengership . . . You can see the short cycles which transpired unto the hour of the victory of the ascension of beloved Godfre. And that experience in the Royal Teton Retreat was one of the very important keys to that activity which led to the ascension of beloved Godfre, truly who came and gave his life and laid it down and took it up again. Though mere mortals did not see, yet he was and is resurrected and ascended in the Light and therefore walked the path of the crucifixion, the resurrection, and the ascension which we continue to celebrate in these forty days following the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

" . . . Therefore, I bow before the Light of every saint in heaven, for they continue to release the essence of the sacred fire to infuse this mystical body of God upon earth with that Light which is necessary for the conclusion of this mission of Light! My blessed ones, I come with a mighty fervor! I come to reinstill in you the love and the desire to know those first steps of Truth, those fundamental principles of the Law. Therefore, I commend Keepers of the Flame in this activity to reread in these days the first three books of the I AM activity—the Unveiled Mysteries, The Magic Presence, and The 'I AM' Discourses—that you will have the realization of the Path that has been carved for you and the Path that you are continuing in these days of acceleration of Light and the outcropping of darkness.

" . . . I come to remind you that in the hour of the release of great Light of the ascension of Godfre, war and the engines of war as they had never been seen upon earth were moving through Europe. And therefore, he took that ascension as the supreme sacrifice for the victory of America. Therefore, the holding of the line of the twin flame Lotus through those years was the 'as-above-so-below' necessary.

" . . . If you will study those three books, you will realize and see that the dispensations and teachings that were given were such a threat to the fallen ones that they evolved entire systems —from marijuana to sensitivity training to all sorts of experimentations with the human body and the chakras—to siphon off the light, to deter souls of Light from their I AM Presence, to take from them that energy of the crown chakra and of the heart and of the Word itself, to divert it, to amplify and amplify again the miscreations of the lower chakras. And therefore we have seen the rise of genetic engineering and pollution by the misuse of the light of chemistry, which again is the misuse of the light of Alpha and Omega in the fiery core of every atom of Matter substance.

" . . . Beloved hearts, realize that great darkness came over the I AM activity in the years that have gone by and it has dwindled. And it was put down by the media, by the press. And the bearing of the battles of the Supreme Court by beloved Lotus shall not be forgot by those of us who are ascended. Therefore, it came to pass that we transferred the mantle to this activity of light that there could be a new burst of freedom and a resurrection of those teachings, even the resurrection of those teachings of the I AM activity and the new dispensations of teachings brought by these messengers.

"Therefore, beloved hearts, you see that the fulfillment of that prophecy of Lotus—that there is yet the intent of viciousness coming forth in America—is for this hour."

Saint Germain

Saint Germain contacted Guy W. Ballard in August, 1930, on the side of Mount Shasta, northern California, and began his training as a messenger for the Great White Brotherhood. Mr. Ballard was chosen by Saint Germain because of his previous association with the master as George Washington and his preparation for this role in this and many other incarnations. Demonstrating the science of precipitation directly from the ‘universal’ and the transformation of his own physical appearance, Saint Germain delivered to the one whose inner name was Godfre the first of many discourses on the I AM Law of Life and the limitless power of the great God Self within every person.

To illustrate the law of karma, Saint Germain escorted his student in their finer bodies to localities where he had lived in past embodiments. By revivifying the akashic records, Saint Germain reviewed for Godfre important lessons in cosmic law from certain experiences in these past lives, hence accelerating his enlightenment on the Path and reestablishing their age-old relationship. Godfre learned that seventy thousand years ago, Saint Germain had been the king-emperor of a great golden-age civilization which existed where the Sahara Desert now is, and that he and his wife, Edna Ballard, and their son, Donald, were embodied as his children there.

Under his enlightened reign, the entire civilization knew an era of peace, abundance, and accomplishment in commerce, education, and the arts and sciences. No government since that time has even approached the achievements of this divinely directed administration. For hundreds of years, harmony among peoples was the law of the land without the need for enforcement by any armed forces. The authority of the affairs of state was vested in Fourteen Ascended Masters, two governing on each of the seven rays of the Christ light, with fourteen lesser masters in charge of the seven departments of government.

Gold was in widespread use among the people for its vitalizing energy and its purifying and balancing electronic force. It was never hoarded but widely distributed because, as precipitated sunlight, its radiant energy served to purify and elevate the spiritual consciousness of the people and balance the natural forces of the earth. Many of the more advanced souls had full conscious use of the powers vested in them as sons of God, and they were able to directly precipitate gold and precious jewels in large quantities for use as focuses of light.

However, a portion of the people gradually became more interested in the gratification of the outer senses than in fulfilling the divine plan of the golden age, causing them to lose their powers of God-mastery. Saint Germain, as the king, realized that it was therefore no longer the divine plan to sustain his reign. He was subsequently advised by those of higher spiritual authority to withdraw. He then held a banquet for his chief councilors and their staff to announce this decision, and there a cosmic master appeared from out the Great Silence and addressed the entire assembly.

The master warned them of the dire consequences of turning away from the great God Source to satiate the endless desires of the outer self and prophesied that the empire would disintegrate unless the people returned to the worship of the light within and obeyed the Law of the One—love. Seven days later, the king and the royal family were taken by the cosmic master to the Golden Etheric City of Light over the Sahara, and without the sponsorship of the ascended masters the empire gradually declined.

Two thousand years later when the empire had become barren and desolate, a great cataclysm ensued, creating an inland sea that submerged the land. After twelve thousand years another earth change drained the land, and later a portion of it became the present Sahara Desert. Today the people of that ancient civilization have reembodied in America. As a nation they are destined to rise once again, to recognize the Real Self within, and to reestablish a great spiritual culture under the tutelage and leadership of their king, Saint Germain, and the Fourteen Ascended Masters who today govern the destiny of America.

To continue the training of Godfre, Saint Germain next took him to the Royal Teton Retreat located in the Teton Range in the state of Wyoming. In this physical retreat of the Great White Brotherhood presided over by the Ascended Master Lanto (whose administrative and executive responsibilities have since been assumed by Lord Confucius), Godfre was shown the great hidden activities of the ascended masters and their councils, instructed in the sacred mysteries of life, and shown on the Cosmic Mirror the past records of the rise and fall of civilizations on Lemuria, Atlantis, in the Gobi and Sahara deserts, in Egypt, Rome, England, and Europe.

Here he received the prophecy and the vision that America would soon become the very heart of a golden age. At Yellowstone Park, at the ruins of the Inca civilization in Mexico and Peru, and in the buried cities of the Amazon, Saint Germain awakened the memory of additional embodiments and past records, including the great golden-age civilization in South America under the Ascended Master Casimir Poseidon, all the while instructing and explaining the working out of cosmic law and divine destiny.

For the next stage of preparation, Godfre was brought into contact with other embodied disciples of Saint Germain–Daniel, Rex, and Nada Rayborn, Bob and Pearl Singleton, David Southerland, Alexander Gaylord, and Zara and Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Livingston—and together they performed various missions in the service of the Brotherhood as they journeyed to other retreats for advanced training: to Eriel’s retreat at the Secret Valley in Arizona, to Saint Germain’s retreat at the Cave of Symbols in Wyoming, to the subterranean Arabian Retreat, to the Retreat of the Master of Paris, to the home of El Morya in Darjeeling, to Chananda’s Palace of Light, and finally to the Cave of Light in India. At the Cave of Light, the Great Divine Director—who had trained Saint Germain, Jesus, Kuthumi, and many other illustrious ascended masters—granted a special dispensation whereby two years of inner-retreat activity was accomplished in just two days of intense purification.

Following this transcendent experience, Godfre and a special group of disciples were commissioned as true messengers of the Great White Brotherhood. All of these experiences are recorded by Guy Ballard under the pen name Godfre Ray King in his books Unveiled Mysteries and The Magic Presence (Chicago: Saint Germain Press, 1934, 1935). Saint Germain and other ascended masters, including Jesus, Himalaya, Nada, Cha Ara, and Arcturus, gave to the Messenger Guy Ballard in the early 1930s a series of discourses on the use of the great creative word I AM and the individualized I AM Presence.

Thirty-three of these were published in the book The “I AM” Discourses. Using a light and sound ray and at times visibly standing in the room, Saint Germain released the power of tremendous rays of light as confirming evidence of the authenticity of this instruction. For thousands of years the inner understanding of the word I AM had been restricted to the retreats of the Great White Brotherhood and given only after a three-year probation. But because of the exigencies of the hour and the urgent need of the children of God on earth for greater assistance, the dispensation was granted Saint Germain for this teaching to be given to the world at large. In The “I AM” Discourses Saint Germain explained that the word I AM releases the full power of God in action.

It is the first expression of every self-conscious being. I AM is the purest and highest principle of life, the Presence, the universal intelligence ever endeavoring to bring forth the expression of the original pristine state of the Godhead. Saint Germain stated that if one would daily train the outer senses to be still for but five minutes three times a day and then call the mighty I AM Presence into action, all the proof that one could desire of its power and reality would be forthcoming.

In addition to the knowledge and invocation of the I AM Presence, Saint Germain taught Mr. Ballard the need for the God-control of thoughts and feelings, the law of reembodiment, the use of constructive desire to accomplish good, how to project consciousness out from bodily limitations, the correct techniques of meditation and visualization, the Law of the One, and the use of mighty rays of light in the service of the ascended msaters. One of the most important teachings was on the use of the violet consuming flame. Saint Germain explained that by calling to the mighty I AM Presence to release this action of the sacred fire, one could purify the mind and body of unnecessary substances which hinder the flow of light, thus clearing the consciousness to receive greater illumination.

For many centuries this knowledge was also taught only in the retreats of the Great White Brotherhood. Now with the setting aside of the occult (“that which was kept hidden”) dispensation and the bringing forth of this instruction, students throughout the world can benefit from the application of this teaching. The master also explained why so many past civilizations had been destroyed by cataclysm. He said that although Nature is itself inherently pure and harmonious, it can tolerate only so much of man’s imposition of vicious and destructive energies before they must, by cosmic law, be returned.

Then the self-purifying, protective mechanism inherent in Nature throws back to man, through cataclysmic activity, the full weight of his past miscreation, destroying and burying the records of iniquity and leaving myth and tradition as the only visible remnant of so many past ages. Now the ascended masters would again teach mankind the constructive use of knowledge that will bring about the perfect cooperation of the great inner forces of Nature. Completing this round of service for his master, Mr. Ballard took his ascension on December 31, 1939, leaving Mrs. Ballard to carry on the work as messenger until her own ascension on February 12, 1971.

In order to continue the work begun by these faithful disciples of the Aquarian master, the Ascended Master El Morya contacted his chelas Mark and Elizabeth Prophet and trained them as messengers to serve under Saint Germain, founding The Summit Lighthouse in 1958 to publish the teachings of the ascended masters as Pearls of Wisdom, weekly letters sent to their chelas throughout the world. Thus the open door to octaves of light is maintained and the progressive revelation of the ascended masters continues to be released.

On February 26, 1973, Mark L. Prophet made his ascension and passed the full mantle of the authority of the Great White Brotherhood to his twin flame, Elizabeth, who is now bringing the word and the radiation of the ascended and unascended masters of East and West to America and to all who have heard the inner call of Saint Germain to bring in the great golden age.

Saint Germain

"Why, beloved ones, in 1930, when the violet flame was given forth, I was there. I AM Saint Germain. That Saint Germain, myself, has now given that flame to the entire world. And do you think, beloved, that the entire world has taken it? Well, it hasn’t taken it yet, beloved, but we will see to it that they will do it one way or another, for the earth depends upon it."

Saint Germain

"Tonight I am particularly conscious of the magnificent service of your Mother Mary. I am particularly conscious of the service of Saint Teresa [of Avila] and I am particularly conscious of the service of Jeanne d’Arc. You see then, precious ones, that mankind has been served, in many cases, by the feminine ray, although masculine leaders are often more popular, perhaps because they have a bit more dash and verve."

"Some of you remember well the story of Joan of Arc. You remember the burden upon her, and you know that I was with her and led her. And you must realize that if the Maid of Orléans can come forth and lead armies, then you, precious hearts, surely can do anything—surely, in your faith in God and the conviction of his promises, you can do anything."

Archangel Michael
December 6, 1985

" I see him * kneeling in prayer, praying on behalf of America. And I see legions from the God Star Sirius hearken to the prayers of the general. I see how the words spoken from his lips on that cold day in the wood were heard by the mighty Blue Eagle of Sirius, who responded instantaneously —these legions of light who made their way, encamping round about him and among the men and, by the infusion of that God-light, securing the victory.

" . . . Above all, I ask you, Keepers of the Flame, to kneel in prayer once a day with Godfre and with me before you retire and to remember to call for the victory of light in America and in the hearts of the American people. And I can assure you by all that lives and breathes, by all that is holy in love, the mighty Blue Eagle from Sirius will answer your call and will deliver this nation as one nation under God—individed, undivided, secure in the oneness of the light."

* Note: Guy Ballard was embodied as General Washington.

" . . . religious freedom as a flame . . . must penetrate where old thought systems sought to limit this divine experience between a man and his God. It must fill the space of the babble of voices and the many who have written their scholarly works defining what is a dangerous cult and what is not.

" . . . Beloved ones, houses of worship, as institutions of learning and all public places, must have door opened where pople may enter if they choose and leave if they choose. As the Archangel Gabriel has said, it is the responsibility of parents and teachers to teach children how to think, how to reason, how to draw a series of conclusions from premises at hand but not to indoctrinate them, not to point the finger and prejudice their minds from early youth.

" . . . The tests (of divine Love) are spiritual ones. They leave the moorings and the support systems of all of the rules and regulations of the world and they bring you directly to the heart of Christ—not what he would do but what he did do.

" . . . Christianity has gained a right to religious freedom. But those who dare say there is more, those who dare take mankind all the way to Golgotha and Bethany's hill—these must be protected."


"O blessed ones, just think of it. You are not called to go to war, to go into battle where you may lose your life or even give your life in honor and nobility. You are not called to leave your families or the comforts of home or even your jobs but only to be at this sanctuary daily if you can. For it is vital in this hour that our sanctuaries be full worldwide and such power be invoked as to test the very limits of heaven as to what heaven will do for the raising up of Freedom.

"Blessed hearts, I come with my joy, my threefold flame, my spirit, and I say, Let us give it all we’ve got! Let us give all of our might, all of our love, all of our desire, all that we might have given in past lives but have not, all that we say we shall give in this life and in the next. Let us give it now!"

"When you call forth from the Great Central Sun as well as your Mighty I AM Presence and the Ascended Host, the Great Central Suns’ Heart Flame’s Love of Indestructible Purity, and demand it fill everything in your being and world with Its Almighty Perfection forever, and then is established around you and wherever you go, it keeps consuming, consuming, consuming the hordes of evil; and then you become the Illumining Presence of the Mighty I AM—Its Almighty Outpouring of anything and everything It wishes to accomplish through you, wherever It moves you in outer physical conditions."

How America was saved during World War II

By Herbert Beigel 1914 - 2005

My family lived in a small town outside Chicago. Growing up I always prayed to Jesus to put me in the right religion and as a result he brought me to the book Unveiled Mysteries by the Messenger of the "I AM" Activity, Guy Ballard (pen name "Godfre Ray King").

So I came into the "I AM" Activity three months after Guy W. Ballard ascended. The "I AM" Activity is the same Teaching as The Summit Lighthouse except that they are much stricter. It's very intense and there are stronger rules. If you don't keep up your decree momentum, you're out and you have to start all over. The whole purpose of their work is to keep you radiating up into the Light!

By 1942 World War II was full on. Members of the "I AM" Activity were in the sanctuary decreeing every evening until 11 or midnight for three and a half years. And the Messenger, Edna Ballard, was always there leading. We decreed standing up and couldn't sit down. There were no days off.

We decreed for hours every night except on Fridays. Every Friday we had a Musicale from morning to night and there were songs all day long. Lotus was a professional harpist and could play the gold harp and a Nova chord that was a cross between a piano and an organ.

On Musicale Day Lotus started playing at 6 am and I officiated. She would play until midnight and never leave the altar. She never left to eat or use the restroom, but she did drink pitchers of water and held it in. She was a powerful woman!

We were told by the Masters that with our decrees we stopped the war four years early and kept this country from going into a dictatorship, which was already planned.

So if you think it takes too much effort to go to a service once or twice or three times a week, think about what sacrifices were made for you and your loved ones by the members of the "I AM" Activity.

"The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American People."—George Washington, his First Inaugural Address, April 30, 1789
"The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained."—George Washington
"His integrity was most pure, his justice the most inflexible. I have ever known, no motives of interest or consanguinity, of friendship or hatred, being able to bias his decision. He (George Washington) was indeed, in every sense of the words, a wise, a good, and a great man."Thomas Jefferson
"[I]f you speak of solid information and sound judgement, Colonel Washington is, unquestionably the greatest man on that floor."Patrick Henry

"The Constitution which at any time exists, 'till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole People is sacredly obligatory upon all."—George Washington

"It should be the highest ambition of every American to extend his views beyond himself, and to bear in mind that his conduct will not only affect himself, his country, and his immediate posterity;
but that its influence may be co-extensive with the world, and stamp political happiness or misery on ages yet unborn."George Washington

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily."George Washington
"Let it simply be asked where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths, which are the instruments of investigation in the Courts of Justice? And let us with caution indulge the opposition, that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that National morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle."—George Washington

"Labor to keep alive in your breast that little spark of celestial fire called conscience."—George Washington
"Let me now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the Spirit of Party generally . . .
