Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the present
generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make good use of
it! If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the
pains to preserve it! John Adams - letter to Abigail Adams
"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is
wholly inadequate to the government of any other."--John Adams
"The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty."--John Adams
"Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private virtue, and
public virtue is the only foundation of republics."--John Adams
On Morality and Religion
"Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and
murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit
suicide." - John Adams
(Copied from"Conservative Source" web site)
John Adams and his wife, Abigail were among the earliest and most adament of freedoms champions.
We have too many high sounding words, and too few actions that correspond with them.
"By my constitution, I am but an ordinary man. The times alone have
destined me to fame-and even these have not been able to give me much."
"Resistance to sudden violence, for the preservation not only of my
person, my limbs, and life, but of my property, is an indisputable
right of nature which I have never surrendered to the public by the
compact of society, and which perhaps, I could not surrender if I
would". — JOHN ADAMS
