Here's a nice collection of quotes from George Washington. A couple of my favorites were in there:
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to slaughter.
The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good.
