Quotable Sunday - #8




Toni at A Daily Dose of Toni hosts Quotable Sunday each week. This week I decided to quotes by Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams. I have admired her ever since I did a report on her in elementary school.



I've always felt that a person's intelligence is directly reflected by the number of conflicting points of view he can entertain simultaneously on the same topic.
Great necessities call forth great leaders.
Arbitrary power is like most other things which are very hard, very liable to be broken.

I begin to think, that a calm is not desirable in any situation in life. Man was made for action and for bustle too, I believe.
