Quote for those who know

Stole this off Vodka Pundit comments:

Quoted by Jerreld L. Newquist,
comp., Prophets, Principles and National Survival,
Salt Lake City: Publishers Press, 1967, p. 60:

“I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers, and it was not there; in her fertile fields and boundless prairies, and it was not there; in her rich mines and her vast world of commerce, and it was not there. Not until I went to the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”

-Alexis de Tocqueville
