John Adams

A quote from John Adams

Our Consolation must be this, my dear, that Cities may be rebuilt, and a People reduced to Poverty, may acquire fresh Property: But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever.

— Regarding the siege of Boston; Letter to Abigail Adams - Philadelphia [July 7th, 1775]
