John Adams Quotations

-In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.

-I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain.
John Adams
