“Familiarity with, and respect for, this greatest of all charters of government among our fellow citizens is essential to our national welfare.”

  • Herbert Hoover, in a letter to Mr. Gurney E. Newlin of the American Bar Association, September 12, 1929.


“In a very real sense, it was then - in 1787 - that the revolution truly began.  For it was with the writing of our Constitution, setting down the architecture of democratic government, that the noble sentiments and brave rhetoric of 1776 took on substance, that the hopes and dreams of the revolutionists could become a living, enduring reality.”

  • Ronald Reagan, speaking at the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution, September 17, 1987.


“The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their Constitutions of Government.  But the Constitution which at any time exists, ‘till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole People, is very sacredly obligatory upon all.  The very idea of the power and the right of the People to establish Government presupposes the duty of every Individual to obey the established Government.”

  • George Washington, Farewell Address, September 1796.


“I hope that you have re-read the Constitution of the United States in these past few weeks.  Like the Bible, it ought to be read again and again.”

  • Franklin D. Roosevelt, Fireside Chat, March 9, 1937
