John Adams

A quote from John Adams

I know of no policy, God is my witness, but this -- Piety, Humanity and Honesty are the best Policy. Blasphemy, Cruelty and Villainy have prevailed and may again. But they won't prevail against America, in this Contest, because I find the more of them are employed, the less they succeed.'

— A letter to his wife, Abigail Adams [February 17th, 1777]
