us the way to be happy in this world

to read it and to regulate your life by
its precepts. - John Jay, letter to

For we must consider that we shall be as a City
upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us.

work we have undertaken, and so cause Him to
withdraw his present help from us, we shall be
made a story and a byword throughout the world.
- John Winthrop, Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, 1630
