Learned and thoughtful, John Adams was more remarkable as a political philosopher than as a politician. "People and nations are forged in the fires of adversity," he said, doubtless thinking of his own as well as the American experience.
This quote by John Adams is something that the hero of Rebellious Heart, Ben Ross, must come to learn: Integrity is more important than success.
Love this quote by John Adams. While this quote is not in Rebellious Heart, the book does contain quotes from both John and Abigail Adams!
"Facts are stubborn things, and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence." ~ John Adams
I was amazed at how fascinating John Adams was and the book is so well written.
