Elections, especially of representatives and counselors, should be annual, there not being in the whole circle of the sciences a
maxim more infallible than this, “where annual elections end, there slavery begins.” These great men ... should be (chosen) once a year—Like
bubbles on the sea of matter bourne, they rise, they break, and to the sea return. This will teach them the great political virtues of humility, patience,
and moderation, without which every man in power becomes a ravenous beast of prey.
John Adams (more quotes by John Adams or books by/about John Adams)
(1735-1826) Founding Father, 2nd US President
