Wisdom Of The Day: John Jay


“Mankind must be prepared and fitted for the reception, enjoyment, and preservation of universal permanent peace before they will be blessed with it – Are they as yet fitted for it – Certainly not – Even if it was practicable, would it be wise to disarm the good before the “wicked cease from troubling?”

~ John Jay, Letter to John Murry, April 15, 1818
