John Adams

A quote from John Adams

We think ourselves possessed, or, at least, we boast that we are so, of liberty of conscience on all subjects, and of the right of free inquiry and private judgment in all cases, and yet how far are we from these exalted privileges in fact!

— Letter to Thomas Jefferson [January 23rd, 1825]
