His Farewell Address

"In offering to you, my countrymen, these counsels...that they will control the usual current of the passions or prevent our nation from running the course which has hitherto marked the destiny of nations...that they may...warn against the impostures of pretended patriotism -- this hope will be a full recompense for the solicitude for your welfare by which they have been dictated." -- George Washington.
