President George Washington
On Subject of Perjury


From George Washington's Farewell Address, September 19, 1796

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labour to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and citizens. The mere Politician, equally with the pious man ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. LET IT SIMPLY BE ASKED WHERE IS THE SECURITY FOR PROPERTY, FOR REPUTATION, FOR LIFE, IF THE SENSE OF RELIGIOUS OBLIGATION DESERT THE OATHS, WHICH ARE THE INSTRUMENTS OF INVESTIGATION IN COURTS OF JUSTICE?"
