James Wilson: Founding Father Quote
James Wilson Quote
United States Founding Father
Government, indeed, taken as a science, may yet be considered in its infancy; and with all its various modifications, it has hitherto been the result of force, fraud, or accident. For, after the lapse of six thousand years since the creation of the world, America now presents the first instance of a people assembled to weigh deliberately and calmly, and to decide leisurely and peaceably, upon the form of government by which they will bind themselves and their posterity.
James Wilson: Opening Address, Pennsylvania Ratifying Convention, Nov 14, 1787
