Quote from John Adams,

"When people talk of the freedom of writing, speaking, or thinking, I cannot choose but laugh. No such thing ever existed. No such thing now exists; but I hope it will exist. But it must be hundreds of years after you and I shall write and speak no more."


John Adams (more quotes by John Adams or books by/about John Adams)
