Friday Quote


‎"I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history and naval architecture, navigation, commerce and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain." –John Adams, letter to Abigail Adams, 1780

Dang, Dew, I was gonna write a comment about basket-weaving!

Do you know how unsettling it is to have the same thought as you?

I'm guessing I have considerably less experience at Quarters than you, though...

Dew prefers Sam to John Adams.
