Top 5 quotes from John Adams
"The jaws of power are always open to devour, and her arm is always stretched out, if possible, to destroy the freedom of thinking, speaking, and writing."
"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."
"We're in a war, dammit! We're going to have to offend somebody!"
"You are apprehensive of monarchy; I, of aristocracy. I would therefore have given more power to the President and less to the Senate."
"There are two types of education. One should teach us how to make a living, And the other how to live."
Top 5 quotes from God, Government
"When dictatorship is a fact, revolution becomes a right."
"The best defense against usurpatory government is an assertive citizenry."
"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
"Little else is requisite to carry a state to the highest degree of opulence from the lowest barbarism but peace, easy taxes, and a tolerable administration of justice: all the rest being brought about by the natural course of things."
"Egalitarians create the most dangerous inequality of all -- inequality of power. Allowing politicians to determine what all other human beings will be allowed to earn is one of the most reckless gambles imaginable. Like the income tax, it may start off being applied only to the rich but it will inevitably reach us all."
