The Bible was the foundation and blueprint for our Constitution, Declaration of Independence, our educational system, and our entire history until the last 20 to 30 years.
- "The Bible is a book worth more than all the other books that were ever printed."
- "It is impossible to enslave mentally or socially a Bible reading people. The principles of the Bible are the groundwork of human freedom."
- "I have always said, and will always say, that studious perusal of the sacred volume will make us better citizens."
