“The difference of conduct between the friends, and foes of order, & good government, is in nothg. more striking than that, the latter are always working like bees, to distil their poison, while the former, depending, often times too much, and too long upon the sense, and good dispositions of the people to work conviction, neglect the means of effecting it.” – George Washington, “Letter to Alexander Hamilton”, July 29, 1795 (emphases in original)
