Adams Says:

"Fear is the foundation of most governments."

"Great is the guilt of an unnecessary war."

"Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide."

"Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry and chicanery, of party, faction, and division of society."

"A desire to be observed, considered, esteemed, praised, beloved, and admired by his fellows is one of the earliest as well as the keenest dispositions discovered in the heart of man."

"A government of laws, and not of men."
