Default Founder Quotes #2 (Benjamin Franklin)

"We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred
Writings, that "except the Lord build the House, they labor in vain that build it."
I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall
succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall
be divided by our partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and
we ourselves shall become a reproach and bye word down to future ages. And
what is worse, mankind may hereafter from this unfortunate instance, despair
of establishing Governments by Human wisdom and leave it to chance, war and
conquest.
