      - George Washington, in his farewell address

Why forego the advantages of so peculiar a situation?--Why quit our own to stand upon foreign ground?--Why by interweaving our destiny with that of any part of Europe, entangle our peace and prosperity in the toils of European ambition, rivalship, interest, humour or caprice?
      - George Washington, in his farewell address

      - Thomas Woodrow Wilson

An ambassador is an honest man sent to lie abroad for the commonwealth.
  [Lat., Legatus est vir bonus peregre missus ad mentiendem rei publicae causae.]
      - Sir Henry Wotton,
        in the autograph album of Christopher Fleckamore (1604)

Tell the truth, and so puzzle and confound your adversaries.
