George Mason

December 11, 1725 - October 07, 1792
"He would, if interrogated, be obliged to declare that his political opinions at the age of twenty-one were too crude and erroneous to merit an influence on public measures. It had been said that Congress had proved a good school for our young men. It might be so, for anything he knew; but if it were, he chose that they should bear the expense of their own education."source: Madison, p. 149maturity, representative, accountability, responsibility, election
