I don’t know how true the story and the quotes are, it all sounds apocryphal to me, but then again it sounds great so I will post it anyway…

In the Continental Congress, Benjamin Franklin was losing an argument, so he said, “Gentlemen, I move that we pause for a moment of prayer.”

Alexander Hamilton, whose side was winning, responded, “Gentlemen, I move that we don’t bring in any outside interference.”
