    Here are a few of my favorite John Adams quotes.

    "The happiness of society is the end of government." - John Adams

    "Democracy... while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide." - John Adams

    "Thomas Jefferson still survives" - John Adam's last words, always competing with Jefferson even on his deathbed (Both died on July 4th within a few hours of each other)

    @Alea_iacta_est

    I conclude therefore that, fortune being changeful and mankind steadfast in their ways, so long as the two are in agreement men are successful, but unsuccessful when they fall out. For my part I consider that it is better to be adventurous than cautious, because fortune is a woman, and if you wish to keep her under it is necessary to beat and ill-use her; and it is seen that she allows herself to be mastered by the adventurous rather than by those who go to work more coldly. She is, therefore, always, woman-like, a lover of young men, because they are less cautious, more violent, and with more audacity command her.

    Nicolo Machiavelli

    @Saudade I take it you read my last post in my enneagram type me section?

    “Entrepreneurs are simply those who understand that there is little difference between obstacle and opportunity and are able to turn both to their advantage.” ― The Prince

    I did not but I figured it'd be right up your alley. Nice quote, haven't read The Prince yet.

    "In order for evil to flourish, all that is required is for good men to do nothing." Edward Burke

    "We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves." Galileo Galilei
    Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it. We should remove the carrot and walk forward with our eyes open. -- Raistlin Majere

    The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world. ~Carl Sagan

    Maybe nothing is entirely true and not even that. ~Multatuli
