"There is no truth more thoroughly established, than that there exists in the economy and course of nature an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness." --George Washington
"Can it be that Providence has not connected the permanent felicity of a nation with its virtue?"
"The order of nature [is] that individual happiness shall be inseparable from the practice of virtue."
“Happiness is the aim of life. Virtue is the foundation of happiness.”
"Without virtue, happiness cannot be."
