Famous quotes containing the words foundation, moving and/or america:

    Laws remain in credit not because they are just, but because they are laws. That is the mystic foundation of their authority; they have no other.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    With varying vanities, from ev’ry part,
    They shift the moving toyshop of their heart;
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    In America the taint of sectarianism lies broad upon the land. Not content with acknowledging the supremacy as the Diety, and with erecting temples in his honor, where all can bow down with reverence, the pride and vanity of human reason enter into and pollute our worship, and the houses that should be of God and for God, alone, where he is to be honored with submissive faith, are too often merely schools of metaphysical and useless distinctions. The nation is sectarian, rather than Christian.
    James Fenimore Cooper (1789–1851)
