    USA Today had a great page today just full of quotes in preparation for President's Day coming up.

    The following are some favorite quotes from my fellow Unitarians and one Unitarian wannabe (Jefferson, but the Bible he created falls in line with Unitarian Principles):

    Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, or inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts.

    President John Adams

    Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.

    President John Quincy Adams

    I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.

    President Thomas Jefferson​
