Today's Prison Quote
When shall it be said in any country of the world, my poor are happy; neither ignorance or distress is to be found among them; my jails are empty of prisoners, my streets of beggers; the aged are not in want, the taxes are not oppressive; the rational world is my friend, because I am friend of its happiness; when these things can be said, then may that country boast of its constitution and government.
