George Washington Quote: “…There is but One Straight Course, and that is to Seek Truth and Pursue it Steadily.” 

President George Washington in a letter to Edmund Randolph, July 31, 1795: “I am not disposed to quit the ground I have taken, unless circumstances more imperious than have yet come to my knowledge should compel it; for there is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily.”
