Sage Advice From George Washington

"Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your reputation!"

This sage advice was offered by George Washington, the father of our nation!

'Tis but one of many wise adages to us he did bequeath.
 
Can be said that truer words were never spoken through falser teeth!

    Both wise and humorous... a winning combination! Profound statements stick in your head more when tied in with a joke, methinks... he seemed to be a very noble man... respected and honored by their fellow me. A big contrast to today's presidents... enjoyed this one!
