Quote

We (Americans) will walk on our own feet; we will work with our own hands; we will speak our own minds.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson, "The American Scholar," 1837 

Go forward, attempt great things, accomplish great things.

– Mary Lyon
 
Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country.” 
 

 Noah Webster
