John Adams

John Adams was the second president of the United States (1797–1801), having earlier served as the first vice president of the United States. An American Founding Father, he was a statesman, diplomat, and a leading advocate of American independence from Great Britain. Well educated, he was an Enlightenment political theorist who promoted republicanism and wrote prolifically about his often seminal ideas, both in published works and in letters to his wife and key adviser Abigail as well as to other Founding Fathers. (1735 – 1826)

John Adams

I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.
John Adams

There are two educations. One should teach us how to make a living and the other how to live.
John Adams
