Another quote out of "Sublime Thoughts" from a guy named R.S. Storrs, whom I've never heard of, albeit he contributes some good insight:

"It certainly cannot be affirmed that we in America, any more than persons or peoples elsewhere, have reached as yet the ideal state, of private liberty combined with a perfect public order, or of culture complete, and a supreme character. The political world, as well as the religious, since Christ was on earth, looks forward, not backward, for its millennium."
