John Adams

A quote from John Adams

I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure it will cost us to maintain this declaration, and support and defend these states. Yet through all the gloom I see the rays of ravishing light and glory. I can see that the end is worth all the means. This is our day of deliverance.

— A letter to Abigail shortly after Independence was agreed upon at the Continental Congress. [July 3rd, 1776]
